Old Vinyl Decal Removal

I just did a video on how I removed some old vinyl decals. After many experiments, I came up with my own process to get'r done.

Heat can work, but it really depends on how far gone the vinyl graphics are. For cracking brittle ones, the only thing I have found that works if Klean Strip adhesive remover (not sold in all states) this stuff is very aggressive, and will even eat through blue nitrile gloves, so handle with care.
Klean Strip | Adhesive Remover


this stuff will soften even old cracked vinyl so that it almost melts away with no need for heat guns.

Very true. I have a couple of really old dried up and cracked ones where I'm using MEK to remove them.
