Decals/Graphics

What have some of you used to successfully remove failing decals and adhesive?

Large stripe eraser from some Ace Hardware or Auto body supply shop. Usually a low power heat gun and a scraper for large areas.

We took Klean-Strip Aircraft Adhesive Remover, an adjustable heat gun, plastic and vinyl scrapers to remove the decals and stripes on this unit.

I had decals fading on my 06 2955rl front cap. I sharpens piece of plexi glass worked to shave of the damaged edges of the decals. Buffing the whole cap with a mild rubbing compound and waxed improved the appearance. Next I went over the decals with a small rag and lacquer thinner to clean the surface. From Home Depot I purchased their little sample cans with matching colors of the decal. With a small brush I painted over the decals as necessary. it's been a year and the still look good.

Up close there is still some shadowing even after using Meguiars RV/Marine oxidizer remover, but you have to be standing beside it to see it. Under the decals is still a fresh fiberglass, but the oxidizer really did a great job.
The the remover was bought at Advance Auto parts when we did it, but they may have stopped carrying it. It is available by doing a Google search. The 3M adhesive remover that is basically the same it still available at Advance Auto parts. It is a black can with a small red label.

Search Montana RV decals on eBay. They have a lot different ones available. Don't know about quality.

I just removed a couple of my 2002 decals and they came right off with a little heat. I used a blow dryer on low heat. They almost came off in one piece.
