Bros, how do I get the sticky off so I can put my replacement decal on? I tried some decal remover and elbow grease for about 30 min today...didn't make a dent.

WD-40 does a great job. If that isn't enough, try xylene.

Body shop grade adhesive remover.

Goof off works good too.

Goo Gone

Acetone. Just be careful around plastic pieces and your other decals. It's a quickly evaporating solvent that will clean gelcoat surfaces extremely well.

Try 3M general purpose adhesive remover (08984). I have used this stuff for 20 years. I haven't came across any adhesive yet that it wouldn't remove. I just used it a few weeks ago to remove the adhesive from a keel guard on my boat. Put the remover pretty heavily on a rag and really soak the adhesive. Let it work for a couple of minutes and with the same rag just start wiping. You may have to repeat this a couple more times.

This stuff is hard to find. I was able to find some a couple of months ago at a NAPA that also sold auto paint.

Goo Gone will get rid of that right quickly.

Hey Guys....Popcorn doesn't get much off, (lol)8p but I do agree with the acetone. Good stuff. BTW, you can eat the popcorn. ;)

Goo gone in gel.
I use this stuff on pinball playfield and it doesn't affect the paint at all.I'm sure it's safe to use on gelcoat.

Goo Gone

Goo Gone is great stuff and is very gentle on the gelcoat. As someone else said, follow up with rubbing alcohol before you apply the new decal.

Also using a hair dryer in the affected area will hear up and soften the glue.
Don't use any razors or stiff bristle brushes as it will scratch up more than likely.

Just pick up some goo gone. You wont need to worry about heat or burning the gelcoat.

Seriously!!!! this shouldn't be a 3 page thread. :cool: Get some adhesive remover. Like goo gone. And wipe it off. Follow up with rubbing alcohol and your done. Apply new decal. Repeat if you screw up.

Its not a 3 page thread... its a 1 page thread. Your posts per page are set too low bro.

Actually it's kind of cool to see all the different thoughts and ideas that come through here. Lots to pick from. :toast: Personally I would have had the stuff off long ago with the acetone.

Hey so real question for the OP: can you get individual domed vinyl replacement letters for the MasterCraft text on the side of these boats? The PO hashed up some of the letters on my boat, not bad but when you're up close they have a bunch of rubbing on some of them. Unless this can be cleaned up with some buffing then I'll need to replace the letters.

I think a wire brush or a razor blade would work. :)

+1. I used one of these to remove pin-striping from a trailer. Worked great removing decal adhesive, paint transfer on my wife's car - a very worthwhile tool.
