Help required, tour sticker removal to reuse ?

Postby locost220 » Mon Dec 24, 2018 10:00 pm

Okay so you may have seen I am presently tackling the body panel repairs and sanding, next up is the rear panel.
Now I would love to be able to remove the tour stickers and reuse them on the yet to be decided new colour scheme as I see these as part of the cars proud history.
I removed the jokey piss take eBay ones in nice stretchier pieces using a hot air gun from the arches, but has anyone successfully removed and reused this type.
(I have a couple of spares scattered round the garage but not a complete set).

When I had to replace a wing earlier this year, I didn't have any luck getting them off. The stickers distorted too much despite being really careful. In the end, I just removed all the stickers so the two sides matched :roll:

Sorry, can't help with with removing them undamaged. Had the same issue as you when removing them from the luego. They were good enough to stick on the garage door though. What ones do you really want rich as I have some new "spares" . K

Rich, how about taking a carefully framed photo of each one and then get them reproduced with a vinyl wrap manufacturer , surely couldn't cost very much ?
One is one too many and one too many is never enough.

Thanks all for the replies, had a chat with a mate who suggested the picture idea, was also going to chat to Mark and see if he still had the proofs of what he had got done.
Thanks also for the offer Kenton, not had a chance to search high and low yet.
What I have just had a go at doing is an idea from the all powerful U Tube of using liquid lighter fuel to soften / dissolve the glue.
Gave it a go on the old bonnet that has a standard club sticker and seemed to be the way forward so carried on and removed all seven on there with a mixture of results. Stored them all flat by weighting them down and will reassess before tackling the rear panel.

Good idea 're Mark.
Just don't remind him of the envelope that was left in the restaurant

I know I have asked before Mark but have you still got designs if I decide to get any reprinted
