I will be taking the Bullitt out of hybernation in a few months so I want to start thinking about the best ways to cover the hologram Bulitt number sticker to preserve it. I have read a few threads on the subject and would like to hear what some of you Bullittheads are doing to cover the sticker. I am considering a clear plastic covering of some kind but don't want to make it worse. Any ideas? Thanks!

Just don't rub on it, if it's going into storage it's not going to just disappear or fade away. I'd be more weary of putting anything on top of it for fear that it might affect the ink.

Excellent question!

1.I have contacted Ford and they say that a
clear plastic covering is on the way.
Don't hold your breath on that one.

2.Some have sprayed clear coat paint on
the hologram. (permanent) This is probably
the best solution, but you only get one shot.

3.Some have applied a clear adhesive tape.
(permanent)

4.Some have applied Cleartastic. This does
not use an adhesive but adheres by static.
It is designed for PAINT protection but can
be used on the hologram. Longterm effects
on the hologram INK are NOT known. I have
put this on my hologram and have discovered
a chemical reaction on the Cleartastic from
the INK when the Cleartastic is removed.
No INK was removed. Mine was on for 3 months.
If Cleartastic is applied and NOT removed,
it is ideal.

5.Stonegard is available and have heard that
it is great. I believe this is permanent.

Whatever you do, don't rub on the hologram
since this may remove the black ink.

Thanks for the response and good suggestions. I am leaning towards the idea of stone guard firstly and then the clear coat second. I do have a few months to think about it.

Has anyone out there tried the clear coat and had any problems with a chemical reaction to the ink?

Thanks again.

I used Lepage #12 2 part epoxy.
If you use this method I would suggest tapeing about 1/2 inch above and below the hologram to get a nice clean line.
Apply a coat let dry real hard ( about two days ) Rub it a bit with 600 grit sandpaper for adhesion and apply second coat.
Epoxy will not yellow and it's real tough.
pretty permanent though.
Good luck

By the way Kaylan, did I read somewhere on here that you have personalized plate BULITTT in Ontario? Would love to see a picture of it as it is the same as my plate.

I used a brand new ziploc bag and cut out an oval in the plastic and adhered it over the sticker with clear tape. Seems to work really well and barely noticeable.
