Those with decal issues Removal videos

I know some of you have had decal issues due to age or sun fading.
I don't have any issues but I was researching products and ran across this mans videos.
He is a professional detailer and produces good videos.
This is an 8 part series he has posted about rv decal removal on a Montana no less.

I've watched a few of his videos. I still haven't found the one I am looking for from an amazon.com product review yet. However, I wanted to post this here before I got lost in internet land and forgot to post.

Be sure to watch all the 8 videos if this applies to you.

Great videos--enjoyed watching most of them. Bottom line for me--hire a detail company. Shoulder problems from waxing my Monty have never healed after 10 years!

The heat gun works great for the bulk of the vinyl removal. For the fine strips and the old adhesive with built up dirt I used 91% isopropal alcohol with plastic double edge razor blades. It takes about 3 good soakings before the adhesive begins to turn to a gel which I just scraped off with the plastic blade scraper and whipped to the ground. I tried using paper towel and cloth towels but they tend to lint up the work area..

WD-40 also works well when removing any remaining adhesives.

Be careful withe heat gun, if you get the glass too hot it will start to check and crack. It also starts to bulge out. I watched two idiots doing Oz's rig out in Arizona and was apalled at the mess they made..
