Decal Removal: Method

  • Drill out vehicle rivets to release layers.

 

  • Fill jam jar with Dettol high enough to submerge the vehicle.

 

  • Place the parts with decals to remove in the jar ensuring all parts are submerged.

 

  • Seal the lid and allow to soak overnight 

 

  • Remove vehicle from jar and gently scrape off decals with the wooden skewer. Small areas can be selectively removed with the point of a cocktail stick (also useful for getting into recesses between body panels and other awkward areas). Larger areas can be removed with a wooden scraper, half a clothes peg is ideal for this.

 

  • If the decal is stubborn soak it again and repeat the process.
