I have some stickers on my Jeep that I want to get rid of (and factory pin stripes), I was wondering what was the best way to remove them? I've heard that using a blowdryer to heat them a bit and scrape them off with a rubber wedge works. Can anyone conform or deny this? Any other idea's?

Try in a place that doesn't show too much, if it's clear coated leave it. If not a heat gun, a razor blade and be real careful. Also using rubbing compound after will make it look better as the paint around the stripes will be faded a tiny bit. Good luck. [cheers]

Adhesive remover and a plastic blade should work

I just took mine of with a heat gun, plastic scraper and paint solvent to remove the glue.
Be sure to test any sovent you use in a hidden area incase it like to eat your clearcoat.
Its really easy.

Hey :mad:

It's not my fault; I don't know how to drive.


Blow dryer and a plastic scrapper woprks too. The problem is the paint under the pin-stripping is usually a different colour (ie:fade)

Thanks guys. I picked up a plastic scraper just now. I wanted to stay away from using metal blades because my hand isn't that steady. Custom pinstriping from trees is one thing but I didn't want man made divits in the paint. As far as fadeing goes, a fresh coat of mud will take care of that. [36]

Plastic scraper worked out real good. I didn't even need the blowdryer a lot. Used the scraper to get it started and peeled by hand. There isn't any fading at all, but you can sure tell how bad the swirl marks are on the rest of it.

I saw a post (on here I think) about using WD40 to remove the glue. Well it works!

Thanks again for the idea's. [cheers] [cheers]

That's what the dealerships I have worked at use. Used one on the wifes car to remove the dealer name decals. Works awesome, removes the decal/pinstriping and doesn't touch the paint.

Glad it worked out for you. WD40 is a really good solvent doesnt touch paint but cuts just about everything else. best thing for cutting alum on a band saw too[36]
