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.

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.
