Hey does anybody out there know how to take off the sticky part of a car dealers decal? I have most of it off but there is still some there. What can I use? I do not want to hurt the cars paint. Any help is appreciated.
There is an adhesive remover that I use, BUT I wait until the surface is quite warm, and then hit it with my high pressure washer. That peels them off in a heart beat. I clean it up with the remover, or you can use lighter fluid.
i soak a rag w/ wd40 and let it soak and as mentioned above use a hair dryer i used a commercial heat gun but be careful as these things get reeeaaaallll hot it should start to bubble and can be pulled away but be careful not to get it too hot or hurt yourself steve
I've told dealers up front that my fee for advertising their business WILL be $50 a month; either no stickers or chrome do dads or they're agreeing to pay. I put it in the contract. I've also had salesmen on their backs removing the stickers themselves.....Bob Dodd
If it's a base coat/ clear coat finish, paint thinner will remove the glue without a problem. The paint and clear coat has been baked on so you don't have to worry about removing any paint under the glue. If the decal has been on for a long time the paint under it might be shinier then the rest of the panel. You will then have to buff the panel and then it gets into adjoining panels and the next thing you know you have detailed your car.
Go to Home Depot or Lowes and get Goof Off. Excellent and won't harm car paint finsihe. Great to have around the house. Also, lyou can use acetone. Many pins trippers use it beore they do a car to remove any wax etc. or old striping.
