"goof-off" eats up adhesives well

u can also use

wd-40, rubbing alcohol, razor works good too

i had to get decals off of work trucks before (company trucks), best technique we find is just using your finger nails. IMO better be careful when using goof off, i used it on my car to get off the civic decal before a paintjob and it was removing the clear off my paint... so you have to be careful, goof-off takes off eeeeverything if u aren't careful. </TD></TR></TABLE>

true, because goof off is in fact, a very weak "paint thinner" just be careful when applying

On a very hot day make the sticker face the sun, it will get hot and soft enough and will peel of so easily, if there is any glue residue try windex, rubbing alcohal, or goo-gone.

Today I just peeled of stickers in the sun, what a breeze.

peel it off doesnt matter day or night. but afterwards I would strongly advise you have goo-gone and use it. goo gone is the sh*t

I used "goo gone" before on my old civic and it damaged my paint.

I found the best thing that works is wd40 and your finger, maybe a hair dryer(won't hurt).

Steam gun/cleaner FTW. Melts the glue so you can easily peel it off. Great for removing tint as well. Done it many times. Hope this helps

i used a hair dryer and my fingernail. denatured alcohol will take off the adhesive and your wax. make sure you re wax the area.
