    How do I get all the stupid stickers off my ski?

    Not my style to look like a billboard. IMO it ruines the lines of the ski and Im not sponsored. Think I heard something about hot water?

    Really want to add my own style to the thing.

    I used a 3M eraser wheel that I used to remove decals from my Jeep. You can get it from any auto body supply shop or Advanced Auto for about $20-40. It worked great. Don't use excess rpm or hold it in one spot for more than a second. I wouldn't use it on a painted cowl though, they're prone to burning easily. For that I used a heat gun, a plastic razor blade, and a lot of patience. Hope that helps.

    Heat gun to soften and remove the decal and an eraser wheel to clean up the glue

    Go easy with the heat gun. I used a hair blower and removed all of them. Heat'n'peal as you go. Worked great.

    If you use a heatgun go easy at the beginning and keep distance in order not to damage the hull.

    On one side my graphics came off easy and mostly in one piece....

    The other side took 10x as long and I couldnt get more than an 2" piece to off.

    I used a heat gun, razor blade and goof off

    The hair dryer way works great usually and not much if any glue residue to clean up.
