    What does that actually consist of, and does it, in a way, fix the sticky paint problem by covering it with stickers? Just hoping, cause i wanna fix my prowl, but can't tell what the sticker set consists of on their site.

    Looks like the lower part of the door is entirely covered with a sticker (the part that says POLICE), so that could solve some sticky paint issues, I guess.

    First off, I love the Reprolabels set for Prowl.

    Secondly, I won't really solve the issue.

    Third, you can solve the issue with a little paint and a sealer. Heck, a little future may solve the problem by itself.

    I think you'd be alright since the black paint is only in blocks. Just a case of masking off the white bits and painting the black. Or even getting some black sticky labels to account for the areas the Reprolabels don't cover. Unless there's black paint that's smudged over onto the white painted sections so you can't remove the black smudges without affecting the white paint, then I dunno, although that's really only the doors and roof if I remember correctly.

    Personally the moment I read about the sticky paint problem when I bought mine I blasted it all over with clear coat right out of the packaging before even the first transformation.

    I didn't have the sticky paint problem (I got the Henkei version) but the sticker covers the lower section of the door. The area that says "Highway Patrol" is left as is.
