    Hey guys I know ive seen some posts on this before but I cant find them now that I need them haha. I know its hard to see but ive applied goo gone 5-6 times and theres still "ghost writing" there. Do I just need a good wax now or should I use more goo gone? [​IMG]

    I would clay the truck and get all of the old stuff off. Then you a nice orbital buffer and apply a buffing compound then a good wax after you have gotten rid of the ghosting.

    yah that pic doesn't do it justice. its not so much the outline of the sticker as it is the outline of the writing. I can still read 'toyota racing development'. not all of it but some of it

    Yea I have seen those stickers do that before. You may need to even take some 2500 sand paper and some water to sand it off. This is where the buffer comes into play.
