Re: safe way to remove old decals

pour boiling water over them then just pull them off. the boiling water is just hot enough to soften them without damageing paint.

Re: safe way to remove old decals

I've always used a hair dryer or hot air gun on a low setting. Just carefully flick an edge up with a sharp blade and slowly peel off.

As long as they are not damaged you should be able to get them off in one go (very handy if you need to keep them to put back on or get some replicas made) wink

I used a 3M stripe removal wheel.  It seemed to work for me.
