How long have you had them on your box? You're gonna want to make sure the impression of the decal is buffed out, otherwise you'll be able to see the outline on your paint after they're removed, 'cause those areas haven't been exposed to the elements. Kinda like when you leave a bra on the hood for a long time, you have some slight discoloration. (Best description I can think of.)

Hmm, since you're in Jersey a little heat may be in order. Just do it evenly.


BTW, my grandmother lives in Willamstown, NJ.

I've seen guy's use hair dryers to "soften up " the decal as they removed them. Seemed to work great. To bad you have to go thru all that work just because of someone else's ignorance:mad: Sorry people in this world:mad:

i've used sunny warm cali, hair dryer, rubbing alcohol dabbed on a soft cloth, and paitence. i've used rub alcohol w/ no side effects. use little a time. it does evaporate quickly. just make sure that when you start to peel the sticker, peel evenly, and slowly. you'll get less mess. after that wash, rinse, wax, and wipe.

a years worth of sun can definately fade the paint , use detailer and a plastic razorblade , and then pull at it once youve got a bit peeled up , after that goo gone/ claybar it.

I've used cotton balls and rubbing alcohol as well. Take your time -- don't rush -- And make sure that you give it a good waxing as well after words.
Peace
