Door Interior Ideas

I'd just like to know if this 'stuff'...? will it work on removing vinyl decals ON the exterior WITHOUT damaging the surface?

Because I need to completely remove the BELT-LINE decal with the pinstriping. You can see this wide "beltline" decal in the photo attached---it's the multi-toned blue one with the name plate "Excella" rivted on to it that runs from the front awning arm, all the way around the back to the other front awning arm. . The reason it needs to be removed is the decal is not procurable anymore...and you can't tell by looking at the photo---but it's terribly cracked from the sun.

WHAT IS MAXWELL? Please explain for those of us who just "came in".
Is that the toxic one? Is there anything that will do a good job, that won't "BURN".

Anyway, I was told this decal could be removed with a HAIR-DRIER? (OR RENTED HEAT BLOWER ? ) ...AND A SMOOTH VINYL SCRAPING TOOL.
ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS----OF COURSE THEY WILL All be welcome.

Your shiney door is just beautiful. I'm surprised more people haven't done things like this to the door...because when it's open, it's very very much "on stage"; I like your idea for when it's closed and you see it from inside; that was the reason I made mine so bold in every way---because I wanted it to be very noticeable through the screen from the inside when it's closed.

We should start a Forum, calling it ""Door interior Ideas".
Anyway guys, get back to me about how to removed the decals without damaging the Vinyl "Clearcoat".

Cat,
I just started removing my mid eightites woodgrain stripe. I tried the hair dryer, then the heat gun to no avail. I then tried the same aircraft stripper from HD that Ron used on the inside of his door and it loosened up the decal enough to pull it off in big chunks. It left behind a lot of glue which required three applications of Adhesive remover (aso from HD) and a plastic scraper to clean up. But the aluminum was left undamaged.

I was thinking it was a reference to the Beatle's song, Maxwell Silver's Hammer. I guess you could use that as a second reference.

Does anyone know if all door interiors are aluminum?

My door looks like steel rusting under the vinyl or at least that is what I had assumed.

Thanks for the idea on the door. I am redoing the interior of my 83 limited 34' in black, white and silver/chrome sort of art deco.
I had not thaught of stripping the door inside.

Stripper

Steven,

Thanx for the head's up. This "Adhesive remover"...is it the "Maxwell"...? Could you tell me what the name of the product is that you wrote about...the "aircraft stripper from HD that Ron used"...? & Steven, is that the one that's so toxic? Is it a "HAZ-MAT" (that can't be shipped)...like the ALCOA Silver Seal is..?


>>I then tried the same aircraft stripper from HD that Ron used on the inside of his door and it loosened up the decal enough to pull it off in big chunks. It left behind a lot of glue which required three applications of Adhesive remover (aso from HD) and a plastic scraper to clean up. But the aluminum was left undamaged.<<

Cat - It's "Kleen Strip Low Oder Aircraft Remover" and "Kleen Strip Adhesive Remover". You can buy them in quarts or gallons. The Aircraft Stripper also come in an aerosol can - convieniant for smaller areas.

I've seen them in smaller hardware stores and even auto stores. Not sure about shipping them.

Spray Can

I forgot I bought the spray stripper too.....It's great for second coating the little stuff that didn't come off with the first application.

I found it at Auto Zone too.....

Roni & Tony...is that "AutoZoneDOTcom"...?

Steven, one more question...? How well can it be 'localized'---i.e., not drip down on the 'fuselage' below the Beltline...? & you apply it how? and you remove the residue how? (sry, that's several questions...

& Paul...
This CAT is very sweet...and very much ALIVE!(& not named "Maxwell" either). heh heh ;o)
