gentle heat is good. IF the decal has been on there for a very long time, it may be brittle and a pain to get off. In this case, a very sharp razor blade and being VERY careful not to gouge the paint works well. Basically, you use the razor blade just to lift the decal off the paint, but like I said, be very careful, otherwise you will be using touchup paint.
I want it off because it's just a cheap sticker, and not an actual emblem. I've thought of the hairdryer method, but was hoping for something that is less tedious. would much prefer a chemical that would make it fall off in five minutes. I notice that goo gone stuff doesn't work on plastic decals. More suggestions, keep them coming. please...
I removed an ugly "4x4" sticker from the rear side panel of my sister's 2000 Rodeo. Not sure if it was a dealer addon or from the factory- it was huge!
I tried a hair dryer, but it didn't budge-- this thing was fused on there. So I got a can of Goo Gone and a plastic body filler spatula. The body filler spatula won't scratch the paint, and I just saturated the sticker with the removal fluid. After a few moments, it stubbornly began to flake off. Patience, grasshopper.
I made sure to occasionally rinse the whole panel off with water just in case the Goo Gone wasn't as paint-friendly as advertised, then began the process over again. Once the decals were off, there was a slight "ghost". Some polishing compound and good wax made it nearly indetectible.
