    I have heard a hairdryer and peeling them off, the hot air softens them...

    Find out, if you can, from the firm how it was stuck on in the first place. That will give you a lead on how to remove it. Most probably done by a signwriting firm, you could contact them. HTH...m

    Hairdryer works for all adhesive stickers, including some intended to be permanent!

    Be patient, warm up larger areas with a fan-heater, and remove residual adhesive with Desolveit (orange based solvent). Mineral turps also works for many adhesives but is smelly and messier to use.

    You are using the correct temperature when the adhesive softens enough for a slow peel, but the sticker is not so hot as to stretch and break.

    They all come off in the end, and there should be no paint damage unless you are very hamfisted and use metal tools and/or too much heat.

    With two people on the job, one to heat and one to peel, you can get on a roll and remove a vanload of stickers in half an hour or less.

    Cheers

    It will be noticable that there was a sticker on the vehicle, but that should disappear within a few months.

    It's an all purpose lubricant similar to the CRC range but made from the juices extracted from the Colonel's 47 secret herbs and spices combined with a special blend of nuclear waste. It is good for dissolving various sticky substances (don't use it on your sheets, it smells)and general cleaning and lubrication.

    CRC or WD-40 might help remove residual adhesive. To eliminate all evidence of previous signage you need to do a good clean and polish. Sometimes a cut and polish is necessary if the exposed paint areas have oxidised more than those covered by the signs.
