Car and Boats - Decal sticker removal

Removal Process

First step, washing the car. Next to remove the decals this is done very carefully heating and peeling back the decals but while not burning the paint, after that waving a heat gun over the decals picking up and edged of the decal and peeling it back. If the decals have been only on the car or boat for a short time they can normally be removed quite easily sometimes even without heat, to remove decals off windows you can use heat and a metal scraper carefully, don’t use the metal scraper on paint.


Don’t Scratch the paint

If the decals have been on the paint work for long time a lot of patience will be required, sometimes it best to get a hobby knife (sign writers knife) and slice the sticker into sections about 100mm by 300mm but don’t cut throw to the paint just the decal, keep a nice steady hand. After you have slice the decal, only try to heat the section you will be removing as heating the same section to many times the decal seems to get brittle after that the glue underneath seems to be even more stubbing to remove, that’s really the last thing we need.


After the decals have been removed there will be a sticky residue, to remove the residue mineral turps is used with a rag, putting a lot of turps on a rag soaking it really and rubbing the rag over an area about 500mm by 500mm for about 30 seconds you will be able to tell if it is ready to come off by getting your Plastic scraper and just see if its soft, than use your plastic paint scraper to remove the residue.

Paint Correction

When you have remove the decals and residue you will be left with the original paint where the decals covered, normally it looks great because the decals have protected the paint, so after that removal process we need paint work correction.
