Saw a recent car restoration program where they used plastic type disc in a drill to remove stickers without touching paint
Those do work. My neighbor bought a new Silverado Z71 and removed the stickers in no time. Didn't hurt the paint. Prepsol removed whatever adhesive was left.Saw a recent car restoration program where they used plastic type disc in a drill to remove stickers without touching paint
I live in the Northwestern area of VirginiaSo, OldManTim, welcome to the forum.
Where are you from and what do you ride?
We must be in the same little part of the universe.. I did the same thing with a 1973 Charger SE. Explicitly told them NO dealer logos on the trunk lid and made sure it was listed on the sales agreement in bold letters.Back in 1965, I special ordered a new '65 Plymouth Satellite, 383 330 hp, 4 speed, positrac.
gave them special instructions that NO dealer badges would be put on the car.....
they ignored that, the rent a detailer, punched holes in the trunk and stuck a metal badge thru the paint and ruined it all for me...
I was really pissed, as the instructions were written on my Order....
so, I was given a choice, have them repaint the trunk lid, or leave it alone.
I had already seen their shoddy paint work, I did not want to have 37 Rivers of dripping paint runs on the car,
so left the badge alone. but, I removed their name, and painted it in to match the car color.
Goof Off is made to remove dried latex paint, adhesive and tar. Another good product is Goo Gone. It's a citrus based cleanerI've used a product called "Goof-Off" with good success, works best on "gummy" type stuff left after the sticker is removed, might eat the stickum under the edges of those Govt stickers a little at a time.
Can damage certain paints, but my experience says OK for most automotive-type finishes, try in inconspicuous place first.
I would use a hair dryer to warm the stickers enough that they would pull off without tearing, then use Goo Gone to remove the residue.
