    Old sticker removal

    Tips and tricks of the trade...that's what I'm looking for.

    Please?

    I felt bad that I said I didn't want to add a 4tec sticker to my ski...so...if I can get all the factory crap off, I can live with adding a decent looking ad representing a site and people I admire and respect.

    Cool?

    Use Avon's Skin So Soft or any citrix based cleaner. Otherwise your thumbnail and some soapy water.

    Then you can apply some light duty rubbing compound or heavy duty cleaning wax as they tend to have some light abrasives that won't scratch the paint.

    The OEM stickers are pretty thick so they may just peel off.

    A heat source does assist in the removal

    warm up with a heat gun, peel up one edge and pull striaght for most of them. some of the decals will leave a heavy glue.
    get goof off, or alchol, or brake kleen, or citrus/orange cleaner will get off any remaing glue, then wash to get the oils off the hull or use cleaner wax...PR...

    3M adhesive remover works. Use a single edge razor to get it started and it might just peel off.

    yes, but in my personal experience wd-40 takes f o r e v e r and a l o t of elbow grease...

    believe it or not goof-off stuff actually does a pretty good job, but I also chase it with alcohol in one way or another ...PR...
