Default Removing decals?

     

Any tips on removing old torn/shredded decals from aluminium (swing arm). Iím just concerned about the clear coat wile using something to aggressive.

Also removing them off plastic?

Thanks,

Heat the decal up with a hairdryer and they will peel right off.

Remove any residue glue with paint thinner.

I honestly don't know the best method, but I do know that if you take a heat gun or a hair dryer you can heat them up and then pull them off. Then use some Brake Cleaner to clean off the residue.

I've not done it, but when I put my stickers on, I used a blow dryer to heat them enough to lift them back up to remove bubbles. It worked like a charm, but I think someone will probably post a better way.

Good Luck

Once I get the sticker off,as you know it leaves that sticky glue behind as Rick mentioned. To get that off I use this stuff called "GOO GONE".it takes it right off,it also smells kinda like oranges. Comes in a little plastic bottle. Put it on and then take your finger nail and it will just come off as you slide your nail over it.

Yeah I use the Goo B gone stuff. I make a trip to Lowes and buy huge bottles of Simple Green (the best stuff ever made) and Goo B Gone. If the stuff is really thick, it will take a couple squirts but have no fear because it gets it every time.
