Removing vinyl striping from automotive finishes.

8 posts in this topic

What is the best way to remove vinyl stick-on stripeing from a car without ruining the paint? This would not only be for something like pinstripes, but also for large wider (4-6"+) sport striping. Would something like Goo-gone work without affecting the paint finish?

Use a heat gun,or a hair dryer get the vinyl hot, it should peel right off.

3M also makes a disk you can attach to a drill that will remove it without damaging the paint. You can find them anywhere that sells auto paint and supplies. They work pretty slick!

Airjer... you have to tell me more about this disk. How could something like this possibly work without damaging the paint? Using a drill? Do you have a picture of this and a 3M part number?

The disks are similar to erasers on pencils only softer. They do work! I've removed decals and logos (stickers) from entire sides of trucks with them with no damage to the paint.

This is the best I could find on the net for a demo

spray GOO B GONE over the decals and let sit for 10-15 minutes and then use a bodyshop squeegee (plastic) and you should be able to peel them right off, then after off spray again and use a clean cloth to wipe of any adhesive left behind

I removed a vinyl wrap on the wifes xb that was in the arizona sun for 5 years. Used a hair dryer. Heat it up and peel, if the heat is just right the adhesive comes off with the vinyl. Cheap and easy.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
