    HAHA don't judge why I want the sticker off.
    I love Jesus but my father decided to slap one of these badboys on me truck.

    It use to have a rainbow above it but i was able to get it off using a crappy blow dryer and plastic puddy knife.

    The only problem I'm having is removing the rest of this glittery sticker(pretty embarrassing right?) when trying to remove the rest of the sticker it starts breaking into really really small small pieces which is no fun.

    I just need the best and easy was to get it off I guess. - Jeff

    Things and stuff and such
    A good hair dryer or heat gun would be ideal. I would not scrape it with anything to avoid scratching the paint, just use your fingernail and some goo gone and wax the area when finished.

    Yeah you might be able to use some goo gone but let it settle on there for a few minutes so it can penetrate through the whole sticker.

    If it's glittery it may have a foil layer between the surface and adhesive, preventing the Goo Gone from penetrating and reflecting most of the heat from a hair dryer. In that case you could leave the hair dryer on it for several minutes, which should soften the adhesive a bit more... or score the surface so Goo Gone can penetrate but that carries a high risk of scratching your paint.

    You don't really care, do you.
    Jesus will hate you and 1,000 kittens and puppies will die if you remove it. Trust me.

    I don't have any stickers or fish etc on my vehicles because the way I drive sometimes, I do not need any ammunition for people to see it and say there goes another hypocrite. People look for the least little excuse to deny Christ.
