but I know a faded out or deteriorated paint spot would look even worse.I just bought my Element, and it's an awesome vehicle. The only thing bothering me about the exterior is the dumb car dealer logo sticker on the back. I want to remove it, but I know a faded out or deteriorated paint spot would look even worse.
So, I'm wondering what is best to use to get the sticker and the adhesive remainders off of the body without damaging the paint job. Any ideas? A friend of mine suggested "slide oil," like the stuff that is used to lubricate trombones. But I figure I'll do a bit more research before I go ahead with it.
The area under the sticker will be brand new the rest will be faded.
A) saturate sticker with Goof-Off.
B) start clawing at edges of sticker with fingernails or, failing that, with a plastic picnic knife (anything harder than that will scratch the paint)
C) peel back as far as you can. When it starts being difficult to peel, take a Goof-Off-saturated paper towel and hold it against the area for a few seconds, then start peeling again.,
D) After you have the sticker off, saturate the remaining adhesive with Goof-Off, wait a minute or so, then start rolling the adhesive off with firm pressure from your fingertips.
