    Try WD-40. Always works for me.

    Good Luck.

    DE-STICKERING A SKI

    This is what I do. I do not use a blow drier. I use a heat gun. this gets much hotter. A heat gun would destroy your hair or curl it up tight in a split second. Hair drier wont do this.
    When heating start in 1 corner. Keep the gun moving. You can angle the gun towards the direction you wish to continue in. Use your finger nail to start peeling the sticker. Go easy with the heat. you can tell if the area is not hot enough because the sticker will only come up in little chunks aprox. 1/4 x 1/4. If this is the case the area needs more heat. Heat it a bit more and try again. keep applying more heat until you start getting big pieces. Heat a large area not a small one. After the sticked body has been removed, there will be the remaining adhesive. I use a little acitone. Proably spelled wrong. This can be purchased at the hardware store.
    use a white terry towl and the above mentioned. Then I wash the ski and use a light duty polishing compound and then another wash . then wax. I hope this works for you. This takes a little time this way but it always comes out perfect.

    If you have a friend at a body shop ask him for his eraser. It is just like a pencil eraser but works on the end of a high speed grinder. If you don't know anybody at a body shop ask the local supply store for just the tip and you can use it in your drill. Also know as a stripping wheel. White in color and textured like an eraser.

    Stripping wheel

    The stripping wheel seems to work ok if you spin it up with a die grinder,but with a drill it seems to make more of a mess

    raw gas vs. acitone (spelling)

    I am not shure which one is stronger. Gas seems to leave a nasty film-smell that I do NOT like to get on my buffing wheel. Personally speaking acitone would be my fav. It doesn't take too much elbow grease with acitone. I have tried denatured alcahol,either/starting fluid. acitone still my favorite.
