    Removing stickers from bodywork.

    I bought some ur Quattro style door ring stickers for my car, however when I put them on there was obviously some defect with them. I queried this with the seller and he sent me some more, however I need to get them off first.

    Anyone got any tips? I wondered about whether to soften them up with a hairdryer first?

    Heat gun or hairdryer might soften up the sticker to make it easier to remove. However, I would have thought you will need to ask the seller of the sticker the best way to remove bearing in mind what adhesive was used.

    Last thing you want is to remove the lacquer as well the sticker.

    Hairdryer or heat gun on low to warm, then try to gently peel - in most cases vinyls come off easily like this, but if not, speak to a vinyl specialist, as you don't want to risk causing any damage to the paint.
