How can I remove stickers

I just bought a real clean used Bounder and want to remove numerous stickers from painted surface, and replace Bounder logo with new. Some of the stickers are old, faded, cracked

Your best bet is the CAREFUL USE of a Heat Gun, but before you go at the stickers, you might want to test an inconspicuous place to see if the paint is going to depart with the sticker...

I have had good luck using a hair dryer. Not as fast as a heat gun, but a lot safer.

I saw this on ebay the other day. The Kangaroo sticker is bit pricey. Dealer might be cheaper.

They do make stuff to soften a sticer for easier removal. You can buy it at most auto parts stores. I used it to remove one from my MH.

I used this product (3M stripe off wheel) to remove stickers from the fiberglass on my MH. I was very happy with the results, it worked flawlessly there is no adhesive left to clean up!

I think the Bounder Kangaroo stickers were a killer deal and bought a 4 pack in "custom" colors to match our stripes (not painted yet), I want to remove a bunch of old stickers on the rear fiberglass and all bounder logo stickers, but paint over the faded cracking stripe stickers, by first cleaning and fine steel wool to remove loose, but not sure what kind of paint would be best, want to hand paint/no masking

I've had good results using WD-40 on some old stickers.

Same here. The hair dryer does not get as hot as a heat gun, you can help it out with a straight edged razor blade.

I agree with the 3M strip off wheel. The guy who does all our decals on our fleet of trucks uses this method exclusively. I watched him do my truck logos in a matter of minutes. Clean as a whistle!
