Removing decals

I, I'm new here. I just got my new pony a couple months ago and I'm in the process of doing some work to it. Does anybody know any hints or tricks to removing the stock decals off the rocker panels?

Re: Removing decals

hair dryer or heat gun to heat up the glue under the vinyl...and after you peel it off slowly (may come off in a few bits) clean the area with some goo gone to get the last bits of adhesive off...pretty simple process

also wanted to say....why so many views but not a single response...i thought this site has been here since '03? nobody here has ever touched a decal?

I just put this post up a few hours ago, I'm gonna have to take a day off work to do it. I'm guessing with the lettering it's gonna be a fun process. Lol

Re: Removing decals

I find the lack of posting disturbing.

But seriously I used my wife's hair dryer to take off my Door Dildos so you should have no problem with a heat gun.

Re: Removing decals

Hair dryer should work fine, as for the heat gun that might make it a bit easier since they tend to heat it up a lot quicker. But if you use the heat gun just be careful not to heat the body to much and touch it! Don't wanna burn yourself

In my defense, I was watching this thread because I never knew how to remove those decals and now I do! Thanks for everybody's input! Hey, don't forget to post pics when you're done.

Just my 3 cents, but I imagine that in this group, there are more people putting decals on than taking them off

Re: Removing decals

dont get the paint too hot, it will bubble up. it they are only 4 months old, you should be able to get a corner and pull the whole strip off.

Re: Removing decals

If you go to a paint and body supply store, they have a special tool that attaches to a drill or air drill that takes off anything you want. It is like a big round pencil eraser and works like a charm. I have taken many decals and stickers off a multitude of vehicles.

I ended up taking it to a shop to get the stripes taken off. Was $75 and took about 2 hours
