Instead of debadging, does anyone know how apply that tiny writing on the windhield? I read in a japanese mag on a how-to for custom printing/ applying, but i couldn't read it!

I wanna put a custom logo on there, maybe a NorCal logo or something. I know no one will really see it because it is sooo subtle, but it'll be that much cooler when they do notice!

There is one thing that comes to mind, although i dont know if its the same theory that your thinking of. Anyway, you can have the logo cut in vinyl, only in reverse. Have the letters removed and the negative space around it left on the window. Go to a craft store and buy the paste that etches glass. Apply the paste, let sit, then remove the residue and the vinyl. This is the same process that the dealer did with my VIN etching on my window for theft protection.

Do not, i repeat do NOT mess around with glass etch in your car. Graffiti writers use etch bath to make permanent tags in windows and if you ____ up, there's no going back unless you buy a new window.

Just get some etch-look glass paint, it's easier to work with and won't burn holes in your upholstery or give you chemical burns.

OR better yet, you can get cut vinyl that also looks like etched glass, and works just fine

dude, you can have a vinyl place make you etched glass looking stickers if you want that look.

they have auctions on crap like that on ebay all the time. there's an example, that's of a bigger type, but they can make whatever you want in that style. :D
