Decal Removal

Items Needed:    1. Heat Gun
2. Citrus Cleaner (GooGone)
3. Cloth or Paper Towels


Time: Depends on size.

Cost: ~$5 USD for the citrus cleaner.

Step 1 - Heat It.

Use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat up a small region of the decal. This will make the decal more pliable and reduce the adhesive bond.

Note: Be careful not to overheat the bodywork or the paint may blister.

Step 2 - Peel it.

Starting at a corner, lift the decal away from the bodywork.

Step 3 - Keep peeling.

Use both hands as you get to the wider sections of the decal.

Go SLOWLY. Too much tension will cause the decal to tear.

Step 4 - Re-heat.

The heated area will cool off after a few minutes, causing the adhesive bond to increase again. You will notice that the tension will increase and the decal will tend to tear easily.

Step 5 - Repeat.

Simply repeat Step 1 and continue until decal is removed.

Step 6 - Clean.

After the decal is removed there may be adhesive residue remaining. Use an adhesive remover to remove residue. We (Tapeworkls) really like the citrus-based adhesive removers like GooGone because they are non-toxic, biodegradable, and can be readily found at hardware, department, and grocery stores.
