I've seen that thing but I didn't want to shell out that kind of money when I thought I could do it myself....
I'm going to try a couple more things today and then I might have to order it anyway!

$13.00 and seems to save a TON of time and effort... I'm totally buying it.
I'm really hoping it tackled the reflective tape, as well!

Yeah I probably should just go ahead and order it. It can be here in a couple of days and my way will take more than that. Yeah, I think I'll go for it

Please take pics and video and show me how it works! I'm leaving for a 4 week (tight budget) back pack trip with my 13 yo granddaughter tomorrow and will be ordering it as soon as I get back!

I've taken various discs to mine. Gasoline and a LOT of scrubbing are the only thing that work for mine.

Here's what worked for me yesterday...
I used Klean-strip Sander Deglosser (that I mentioned in an earlier post)...
took one of those ScotchBrite green scrubbies to it lightly and the glue balled up...
THEN...wait for it...
Rubbing alcohol! took it all off like nobody's business!! My jaw dropped when I saw it working so effortlessly
I had the glue off the whole bus in 2-1/2
Hrs!!

Just like inside my big bus its always the sticky stuff and adhesives that seem to take the most effort.
Raising the roof was NOTHING compared to removing that 22 year old tar/asphalt nightmare.

I used the wonder wheel on the decals - and the reflective strips - it took three wheels to do it - but worth it - it removed all the reflective tape / adhesive and left a nice buffed surface. No scratches.
It does take some time - One side of the bus came off in about 20 minutes the other side took about 3 hours...
The reflective rectangle "School Bus" on the front and and back of the bus took the longest time - I ended up using a heat gun and scrapper for some of it - the the Wonder Wheel for the rest.

Overall - a process...

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!
