Some vinyls remove easier than
others. If it is baked-on by the sun it can be difficult to remove.
technique is to push a squeegee (or other flat tool) against the edge of the
graphics to lift a corner. Once the corner is lifted, slowly peel the vinyl
up. If you pull too quickly some glue will remain or the vinyl will
break. To reduce breaking, heat the vinyl. Sometimes just having
the lettering/graphics in the sun will provide sufficient heat, or you many
need to use a hair dryer or heat gun
(caution is required to prevent damage to the surface). Heating will allow the
vinyl to stretch rather than break.
remains on the surface, it can be removed using mineral sprits, Goo GoneŽ,
fingernail polish, or equivalent. Multiple
applications may be required. If mineral sprits are not adequate, you can use lacquer thinner, however this may damage
the surface. Test on a small concealed area.
If there is a "ghost" of
the vinyl on the
surface, you may want to buff it out.
