Factory Seadoo Stickers
Whats the best way to remove the big Seadoo sticker on the lower side of the hull?
Been on there in the sun year around since 2005 also!

Heat gun and plastic scraper

I use a old cheap hair dryer for decals. It does not get as hot as the heat guns and works well.

+1 on both.....heat,not real hot but just enough to loosen the adhesive and then pull it back slowly...

then you will need to use some goof off to remove the excess glue.. And the plastic scrapper

My way, hair dryer.
Clean off excess adhesive with mineral spirits (good old paint thinner for oil base paints). Never use Acetone or Lacquer thinner as it will dull (damage) the surface. If it looks fresh and new under there compared to the rest of the ski, 3M polish and machine (to save elbow grease) will bring it back to almost brand new. Same goes for all top surfaces of any ski, any colour.
Going further? The metallic OEM decals require higher heat, like a paint stripper gun, but be careful as they are nasty at times.

I prefer an exacto knife and a steady hand. If I'm in a hurry then I get out my chainsaw.
P.S. Don't take my advice.
