Removing Number Plate Backgrounds

Recommended Posts

I got some plate backgrounds in the mail today and want to remove the white one on the headlight shroud. What is the easiest way to remove it without damaging anything.

Heat gun, and then clean it off with soapy water[/quote

Yep, or rubbing alcohol works well too.:)

B e careful with a Wagner heat gun, it will melt your plastic in the blink of an eye. If you dont have one, dont buy it. use a hair dryer set on high and warm the sticker up at he corner until the adhesive gets greasy, peel from the corner then heat from the backside of the sticker while pulling. Easy as pie.

Like he said... hair dryer works well too and it's foolproof. Be very careful what you use to get the rest of the glue off.

A lot of cleaners will take the shine right off the plastics (Goo Gone etc). Soapy water or Orange based cleaners work fine.
