Decals usually come off if you blast them with a hairdryer and then peel them up.

You can use denatured alcohol to remove any remaining glue. Just don't rub too hard. The clear coat will start to rub off.

The only way I found to remove the decals was Steam either with Andy's method (use a wet towel, place iron over the towel and away they go.) or I purchased one of those for sale on tv steamers worked great. But have no idea what it will do to clearcoat so caution advised.

WD-40 should work without any ill-effects.

LIke the above mentioned...rubbing alcohol does remove and take up the glue residue left behind by the stickers...however the strength percent of it has to be as strong as they will sell over the counter and we get our higher proof of it from Walgreens. A lesser 'proof' type of it will not work so shoot for the highest number you can get. And we looked all over the place and only found the higher number at Walgreens.

Autobody shops use a drill powered wheel-type eraser for removing decals & stripes without damaging paint & clearcoat finishes. I have used them and found the results to be good.

I used Baby Oil... and it works. Don't ask how... it just does the job.
