Sick. Where can I buy it? I tried searching online and found nothing. How long does it last?

Heh, I was wondering that too... I picked up my T/A KDW 2's last weds and they didn't have painted letters!

I read above how you did it!

I did that back in the UK on my Pirelli P Zero Neros I had... in yellow on my yellow car.

Your car is looking good...!!!
