How the heck does one peel paint off? These decals were stuck on there really good I think that is the only reason if shipped off. Heck there is one 2' section of decals I cant even get off unless I go like 1/2 a CM a time with a razor blade.
Heat gun and a razor blade on a handle like they use to remove the inspection sticker on your car then use a acetone to remove glue use a paint brush to apply the acetone get it pretty wet a couple of times the glue should scrape off with the razor blade. Be careful with the razor blade not to gouge the gelcoat just use it an angle.
I just did this on a boat if the glue is really thick use a scrub brush soaked in acetone do not worry about tiny scratches you will remove those when wetsanding I do 400 grit then 600 grit then buff with 3m heavy duty cutter you can buy it at pepboys or auto paint shop. Its hard work but the results will amaze you! Good Luck!
