I have transfers on the doors of my Nissan Terrano that spell out TERRANO in big letters. I would like to remove them so I may add a couple of grey strips instead. Tried to remove them and they will not peel off evenly, breaking off in small 2x2 cm bits.
Anyone taken off these stick on transfers succesfully ??
Or is there any compound orfluid that helps to soften the glue, without wrecking the paint work? Shall be trying metho then petrol in a few days but if someone can enlighten me I shall be able to overcome a trial & error sequence. Many thanks......... Derric.

Been down this road before, ended up taking it to a panelbeater who used some special rubber wheel on a real slow air tool that takes them off very easily.

It was cheaper for me to get it done than to buy the wheel.

Try a hair dryer or hot air gun, works for me, and same advice was given to me by local sign writer. Use metho to clean up remnants of glue. Hooroo...

As mentioned above, a hairdyer or hot air gun works a treat. Just tickle up the end of the transfer as you heat it and then gently pull up while holding the heat on as you go.

Just be carefull not to stop in one place with the heat too long as the transfer will get too soft and break off.

My wife and son run a signwriting shop here in Cairns and do this type of work constantly. Heat is the simplest and best method followed by eucalypyus oil to remove remaining adhesive. Be very careful using metho on 2\pak paints as it will disolve many of them. Cheers RobCairns Offroad Training & Tours
