wal mart and home depot sell stuff called "sticker off" - you rub it on top and they fall right off.

oh no,,,, not at all. If you want to save yourself a trip, just use gas and an old toothbrush - that works even better and will not hurt your paint.

Hair dryer, putty knife to get a corner started, and acetone to clean up any residue. Before using acetone to clean up any glue that stayed down try using the sticky part of a decal that you've already pulled off to pull it up.

My stickers came off easy with a hair dryer,just pull slow,then use acetone and clean off excess glue.

I will issue a word of warning about those sticker wheels. I found out the hard way, that you can burn right into the paint with them. Do not use them at a high rate of speed or you will have a dull scrub mark on your paint.
In fact I've found the heat gun is the best way to take them off.

Don't use solutions on the hood, glove box lid, or wind screen!!! I did and I had to buy a new glove box lid... The rest of the ski was fine! Someone chime in if that was different for them.
