Re: Removing Vinyl Numbers/Letters

I just peeled them off on a hot day. Left glue on still. You can still see where it said "WildWater LTD Rafting" the website and the 800 number. It also peeled some of the paint off to so you can see "school bus paint" under it. I also utilized the "razorblade" method on some parts as well. I dropped a razorblade behind a rub rail... took months before I could get the thing out (in pieces).

*takes notes since she should have a bus this month dang it*

Would a hair dryer work? At this rate it might be too cold for the sun to heat up letters to peel off

So that the doctor can practice on them? How long does a doctor have to practice medicine before they get it right?
