Decal issues

I decided to remove my decals on my fenders, doors and rear quarter panel. Easy enough right? Hair dryer, goo gone and some patience no problems. Well not so much the fenders and door striping came off without any problems but the rear quarter panels are giving me hell. It's pulling the paint off with it. I'm at a loss, here's some pics of what I'm talking about.

Try heating it up first with a hair dryer or a hear gun. That should loosen the glue keeping the vinyl on making it a bit easier to come off.

I did, it seems like that specific decal isn't the same material as the other ones. I don't know if its because the bumper is plastic and the door and fenders aren't or what.

The guy I use on all my truck lettering uses a small torch to heat up the strips and letters.

I am definitely too scared to put a open flame on my plastic bumper, I do not see a positive outcome to that lol
