how to get bastard stickers off the truck??

I have 2 stickers on the paint that I want off. They are on there GOOD and I cant seem to peel them off without excessive amounts of messing around. Is there any easier way? Rubbing alcohol?

Matt

Use a heatgun or hairdryer to heat up the sticker. Then pull off the decal. Use an adheisive remover to get the remaining glue off. (goo gone, 3M adheisive remover) If have a local sign shop, pop in and ask if you can use some rapid remover (by far the best choice.

ok thanks very much. I'm gonna try the hair blower trick, then use alcohol to remove glue, then wax the hell out of it when I'm done.

I've had great success with an angle grinder. Just gotta be careful not to use too much pressure.



I think you have some good ideas to get you started. One thing to add, take your time. The slower you take it, the better it will be.

hair dryer will do er that is if you have one of the old ones that gets hot before they put a temperature controller in them to keep people from burning themselves. I bought a milwauki one designed to remove paint and it works very well

I use a hair dryer and goo gone. Works like a charm. You'll never even know the sticker was there in the first place.
