#145 of 150 Dealer decal removal success
Jun 04, 2011 (1:08 pm)
FYI, just got something called "Tarminator" at NAPA. The salesman said he'd used it to remove decals. It took the residual decal adhesive right off my car, and it doesn't seem to have hurt the paint at all. It's main indication, obviously, is to remove tar, plus sap, etc. $5.79, if anyone's interested.
Thanks to whoever posted the message about not using WD-40 on paint. I was about to do that, since it worked so well on the adhesive on the windshield. I still recommend it for that application.
#146 of 150 How to remove sticker residue from steering wheel
Sep 13, 2011 (9:50 am)
Before I begin a new post, I was hoping I could get some feedback on this one. I need to know what is the best way to remove sticker residue from the "inside" of the car. I had some felt w/ adhesive backing on the steering wheel and when it got really warm and I removed the decal, it left some tackiness from the adhesive behind. What is the best way to clean this without harming the vinyl or leather?

To get wax off the car I would recommend a cirtus degreaser - it's great for removing any goo or adhesive (the stuff that smells like oranges).
If you want to remove a decal from a car or car window, I would recommend a wonder wheel. it's made from soft rubber so won't affect the paint and is much quicker than using a heat gun (also takes off most of the adhesive or goo).
You can see a video of the wonder wheel at www.decalstickerremover.com
Hope this helps

There are a few options to remove a decal / sticker from your neon car. They are:
1) heat gun: works fine, though does leave residue afterwards. (I would recommend citrus degreaser to remove this. You can get this from most hardware or supermarkets
2) metal blade: definitely not as can scratch the surface
3) plastic wonder balde: generally okay, though can be hard to find an edge to start it. Better for smaller / more delicate ares
4) wonder wheel: definitely works and removes most of the goo aswell. You do need to have a drill to use with it (it's basically a rubber wheel that attaches to a drill and strips the decal away without affecting the surface)...
