Good deal, wonder if brake fluid would take that off , I realize brake fluid kills paint but the bus gets repainted anyway

IDK. We've tried virtually every chemical we can find. Even with the gas it takes a LOT of effort and time to get this crap off.

What would REALLY make my life easier, though, would be to find where to buy the seal that goes around the WC door.
NO ONE seems to have parts for this thing when I make inquiries.

Its a ridiculous proprietary thing made specifically for the door. They're both so funky they can't be duplicated without a TON of fabrication. A TON.

It is a cool ornament, reminds me of the movie "Howard the Duck". I thought it was a funny flick, lots of duck puns. I'm not duckin' kiddin!

Teal or more of a Aqua Marine?

I use this product to remove decal adhesive, made in the USA. Soak a rag, wash the adhesive with wet rag, use a plastic scraper like a bondo applicator to scrape the adhesive off. It'll come off like big globs of snot, wipe the globs off on a dry rag and repeat. Fine tune the rest with the wet rag. Use a rubber glove it'll dry out your skin, it's also got a pretty good hum and will light up quite well. Automotive paint friendly.

I don't know where to get that stuff, but I'll look for it in the future, thanks!

This might be too late, but I just watched a video of a guy easily removing decals off his skoolie with this: https://www.amazon.com/Transtar-6673...=transtar+6673

I am totally ordering it!

I just watched video again... he removed a 6"x6" decal in 1 minute 17 seconds with it, not apparent damage to the metal!
