Old sticker Removal

Ok, so I have read on how to install the decals......No problem there. My questions is how do you get the OLD decals off without damaging the paint underneath? Mine have been on since the factory.

a lil heat and i also used a canadian sticker remover that was at my local parts store to loosen up the sticker itself, as well as remove the leftover residue. that is the only good thing to come out of canada by the way

I did my debadging on a hot day with 40# fishing line and some adhesive remover. To remove the rest of the junk I polished with a wac cleaner. BAM good as new.

The best and easiest way is to go with 3M's decal remover spray followed by the decal adhesive remover spray. They aren't chepa but work great. Maybe even try one of their eraser wheels you mount on a drill or air grinder.

No, I don't work for 3M but have learned over the years their products WORK and work well.

I just took mine off last week, i just peeled it of during the day it was only about 98 degrees outside and it peeled right off. Then i used some ronsonal lighter fluid to break up the left over adhesive. Then wash it with soapy water and re waxed.

decal remover

i used a rubber eraser decal/sticker remover you put it on the end of a corded drill; battery would eventually run out of power, it takes a little while but doesnt hurt the paint at all. i used one for both sides and still had alot left, got mine at baxters auto parts for around 12 dollars.

When I decided to no longer be a part of the Toyota Racing Development team, I removed the decals on a hot Texas day (hot=108 degrees) by gently pulling them right off. I used Meguiar's Scratch X on a cloth rag to remove the sticky residue. I washed it with soap and water and the black paint looked perfect.
