These warning stickers, are a B**** to get off! They sure aren't like normal stickers...I used a hairdryer, takes a pretty long time for the big stickers.
Any other ideas that will take these things right off with ease??

You'll also gain ~ 1MPH without them...
J/k...No speed gain...

yea i had atleast 2 hrs. in taking off all my warning stickers. i have a tool from mac tools made to take stickers off without harming fiberglass, gelcoat, paint ect. but unless you use it a lot its not worth the $350.
i just wrote it off as a business expense. haha

If you trust yourself with a torch..... I used a "propane" style torch and lightly heated the big one on the back of the hull / seat and was able to remove it relatively quickly, almost no glue residue and what there was came off easily with the orange cleaner.
Lightly heat only the sticker, (much like you are spray painting, too much in one area and it will run, ie, bubble and burn) not the surface of the hull adjacent, fan the torch over the sticker, shut off the torch and slide a fresh razorblade under the edge just enough that you can get your fingers on it and start to work the heated area back using only your fingertips.
Warning, you can burn your paint if you are not careful. I would NOT do this on the glove box sticker. (which is on plastic and removes easy anyway)
ONLY do this if you are comfortable with a torch and don't overdo it.

stickers are very easy to get off with a pinstripe removal tool! With a pinstripe removal tool in a drill you could have off warning stickers in less than 10 minutes!
