Removing Streetglo decals

Once the reflective stuff is applied is it easily removed without damage to the surface as regular stickers are with the use of a blow dryer or warmth?

I just don't want to add reflective accents and not be able to change the design, etc.

Thanks,
Glen

Re: Removing Streetglo decals

Yes, they are removed just like other decals. Use a hair dryer to warm/soften up the glue then peel off. Clean up any residue with something like GOO GONE.

Re: Removing Streetglo decals

Even better than goo gone is to use Mineral Spirits. Mineral Spirits act as a very soft buffer between the adhesive and the clear-coat of any type of paint (this is great for boats and cars as well). It will not leave a dull spot in the paint or clear-coat like other more abrasive cleaners do. Just make sure you use a clean, soft cloth. It takes more elbow grease (though not much more) but will not harm your paint in any way, shape, or form.

It has the added benefit of not attracting dust or particulates like other cleaners and polishes. This in turn makes the area repellent like wax (though for not as long as wax).

This is an old motorcycle dealer trick to remove decals and reflective tape when you get a used bike in and want to resell it.


EDIT
This is really good stuff, though you can likely find it cheaper.

Even if you remove them the right way, the surface may weather a little different.
