The stickers on my KZ New Vision are looking pretty sad. How hard are they to remove and wheres a good place to have new ones made and installed?
Thanks for any help.

There is a device called a decal eraser that is a wheel you put in a drill or a slow speed air tool. It is made of a eraser type material and is available at auto parts stores that cater to the auto body shop trade. Used by most all the body shops. I used it to remove remove decals and it worked pretty slick. Just be gentle and don't get the surface you are working on hot with too heavy a hand.There will be a shadow where the decals were.

Once you get them off you can order new from the factory or have custom made decals at pretty much any sign shop.

Forget the stickers...get a body shop to paint them back on.

Hair dryer usually works great for removing vinyl stickers on metal siding or car bodies. Just don't focus too much heat in one place for too long or it can damage the paint.

Same principle for removing the dealer advertising decals? (88% turning radius, blah, blah, blah)

start with a heat gun; get as much to peel as possible.

Then use the 3M Stripe/adhesive removal tool as mentioned above...I use a high speed to get decals off.
Follow up w/ 3M adhesive remover #08904 or 'goo gone'
