How do you scrape off bumper stickers? I just bought a 95 Coachman Catalina, and there are bumper stickers galore! I want to get them off so I can get the rig repainted. Thanks. :cool:

Your friendly hardware store should have the right stuff. Also, ask your painter. They deal with this problem all the time. :blush:

Try a product called "Goo Gone". I've used it many times on many surfaces. Most recently on my '77 Fleetwing. I had a few stickers on my windows, and the Goo Gone brought them right off. You can find it at Walmart and various hardware stores. Hope this helps. :laugh:

Be careful with the Goo Gone stuff. Yes, it works really good, but will discolor some things like siding, etc. It happended to me on my house siding when I was trying to get some caulking off. Had to buy some paint to cover up the discoloration, but that worked.
Good luck.... ;) :cool: :laugh: :)

I think he just wanted to share my enthusiasm. :blush:
Thanks all for your advice!
I also have 2 large (I think they are vinyl) images on the sides- I think I will leave those big ones to the pros.

Goof Off is great but be careful and make sure you clean it up after you remove the decal. I would test it in a hidden spot first before you tackle the decal.

alos make sure you are in an open spot or you will get a toulene high if you inhale the fumes...it kills brain cells and they don't regenerate. I can't afford to lose to many more of mine, my wife tells me.
