is it painted on pin striping or tape?
If it's tape I use a hair dryer and a plastic scraper, if it's painted just sand it off

I use a heat gun and a plastic razor blade, Then either goo-gone or if it's really old decals,dealer emblems or pin-stripes that has left the tough glue residue that's like old cement, I've got a product called speedy500 just spray and let saturate and then use the plastic razor blade and scrub away.It's removed everything I've put it on so far. And that's one of my pet- peeves (no stickers, pinstripes or dealer emblems) on my paint.

Getting ready to do the same thing to my jeep cherokee as soon as I get another heat gun. Maybe do a write-up w/pics on it if I think it would be of some benefit or help to anyone? Don't know yet! If any one thinks so let me know.

Yeah I will just as soon as I get the heat gun. I'm alot like you right now I've been layed off for alittle over 2 months now and money is tight as you know.
On the plus side I ask a buddy tonight if he'd go pick up a couple hoods for me in a day or two and he kinda had the deer in the headlight look. I ask what's the problem and he ask me if I'm talking about car hoods and I said ofcourse why?

Now I had the deer in the headlight look when he told me that he still had the 3 hoods that I gave him about 2 years ago, doh What??? I forgot all about giving him the hoods, (thought I gave them to someone else to haul-off) so now I've got my hoods coming back tomorrow cheers

Now all I need to get is a heat gun for the pin strips and decals and some black brightside paint. Life is good!

By the way, that green will look great!!

Yeah I sure agree with you!
Droped mine so many times over the years it worked every now and then so I had to get rid of it, now need another pretty bad.

Been looking at this one for the price and functions

Or maybe the snap-on heat gun because I can get it and make payments along with the makita payments, LOL

Lacquer thinner will work for the glue but it is a lot of work. I took the bottom stripes off a 92 ranger a while back and it seemed like forever. Next time I will try goof off.

I understand they make a adhesive remover wheel that you can put on your buffer also. Never tried it so I can't say anything about it tho.
