Remove vinyl/stickers

Anyone have tips? PO put this crap on car. Just keeps piecing off and breaking. This crap is real flimsy. Blow dryer heats it too much and just stretches and breaks. About to lose my mind

Found a rubber wheel. Going to try it out. Took 4 hours on just one side with the help of my friend for two hours, goo gone, blow dryer, and swearing.

I worked at a body shop when I was a kid, and we always used a rubber wheel. You have to be careful though........ if you stay in one spot too long it gets so hot it can screw up the paint.

When my truck was sideswiped the bodyshop replaced my bedside stripes and it was rubberwheel all the way, and a gigantic PITA (and time!). I'm glad the other guy's insurance was footing the bill.

Since I did one side by hand I figured i would just do the other by hand too. Have it almost all done besides where it wraps in between fender and door. Gotta work on it every now and then because just sitting for hours makes it worse as I get pissy. You never realize how big a stripe is til you pick at it for hours.

Amen brother, I hope I don't ever want to remove the roof vinyl I'm having installed right now.

Goo gone or Turtle Wax vinyl and sticker remover works well to loosen it up along with some heat.

Ive found that goo gone makes it harder for me. I can get decent sized pieces without it but seems like it rips easier using it. Heat did help some but too much and rips easy again. Idk what type of vinyl the previous owner had but this stuff is the biggest pain. The single red stripe was no problem, came off in one pull but the silver block is terrible. Just time and patience working and keeping me sane. Thanks for all the replies I appreciate it.
