Try rubbing alcohol. It is safe on paint and will remove many things...just make sure you use 70% isopropyl alcohol and not the stronger 90-91%.

Using a light compound...such as a "final cut" type (more of a fine compound then a heavy one) will usually take this off. Just make sure to wax part again to keep the paint protected and looking good.

i recently bought a 92 toyota paseo 2 dr coupe off a mate. It has a decal down the sides that take up most of the car.
The decals are stickers and they have been on for about two and a half years. The car is red. (the paint on the car is relatively good condition. after a cut and polish it looks great)what is the best way to successfully remove the decal. is it possible to take it off without leaving a mark.

If it is just a big sticker as you imply one of the best ways would probably be to use a heat lamp if you have access to it, otherwise a hair dryer works too. Heat up a small area at a time and slowly start to peel the sticker off.

Does any one know if the Dodge and Cummings emblems on a 2006 truck are pinned on or are attached with adhesive. I would hate to try to take them off and ruin my paint job. Would the floss method leave any marks it they are pinned.

If they are pinned it would probably leave two holes in your fender.

Go to an auto parts store and look for what the call and eraser wheel. Its just a round eraser that will attach to a drill to rub off the sticker. You will probably need to buff the area a lil to make it look good again.

#120 of 150 Sticker design burned into paint
Jun 02, 2007 (4:33 pm)
I have just bought a truck from the company I work for (2005 Dodge Ram 1500). It is white and on either front door there were stickers which I got off with few problems and removed all the adhesive as well. But, now where those stickers were on the doors you can still see the design in the paint. These stickers were only on there for just over a year, but more people buying there trucks have had the stickers on there much longer. Would a light rubbing compound take this out or will it be a more involved process? Thanks for any help at all anyone can give me!
