Registration number replacement
 
I bought a used boat and need to replace the registration numbers. Any suggestions for removing the current stickers? I don't want to use any chemicals or heat to remove the adesive residue that could harm the gel coat.

After removing the existing numbers, what do you suggest to remove any wax that could prevent the new numbers from sticking well?

Just warm the vinyl up with a hair dryer and peel them off. Nothing to it.

And for the gummy stuff I use a plastic scraper and WD40.

You can use anything: WD40, paint thinner, gasoline, Goof-Off, etc. Once you get your new numbers on use a high quality marine wax to help seal the pores in the gel.

Is goof off safe to use? I used it on some glue left on our Rv and some got on the gel coat and it now looks dull in that area. Just want to be sure it's ok to use.

Goof off works fine. Just be sure to wash down the area after you use it. That goes for any adhesive remover.

I just got a new boat and was considering sticker on and sticker off that Overtons sells? I have to remove a California emissions sticker that is on each side where my registration numbers go. Any thoughts on these products?

If you have a little white gas (coleman stove fuel), a little on a rag will wipe it off without any harm. Wipe the area afterwards with clean water and wax.

Xylene will remove sticker goo PRONTO. We use it to prep vehicles when we install wraps. Doesn't harm the gelcoat or auto paint. Just don't get it near ANY stickers you want to keep.

Acetone is the very best to remove the stickey...You will need to wax the area afterwards. Post a pic of your Reg....Domed letters always add a touch off class.:)
