Decal Removal


Company was bought out and relocated, had to remove some of the decals from the doors. Thought they came off clean until the dirt hit it. What do I use to clean off the residue without messing up the paint?

Decal Removal


I've had success with plain old lighter fluid. A single edged razor blade might help too.
(the razor might not be too good of an idea on a painted surface though....)

Decal Removal


A product called "Goo Gone" worked for me. I've also used kerosene to remove over spray from automotive paint. Wash and re-wax afterward.

WD-40 will probably work too.

Decal Removal


goo gone combined with hair drier and plastic knife or credit card. credit cards are very good for this.
goo gone takes some time to start softening stuff. hair drier on high softens glue and material itself.
