First mod for the new Sierra is to remove this decal, any suggestions on how to do it clean with no residue or issues?

Thanks

Heat Gun or hair dryer.
Get it warm and peel away.
If thats a foils sticker, it will take a bit.
The vinyl is much easier.

Yea, sucks, its a foil sticker.

So low heat, medium heat, or high heat?

How long would you keep the heat on there?

I removed mine with goo-gone and a blow-dryer. A heat gun might be too much heat and hard on the paint.

Goo-gone will remove just about anything with time. I let it sit on some plumbing fittings in my boat that were sealed with silicone and it ate right through the silicone after 24 hours. I'd also recommend a PLASTIC razor blade to help get underneath it.

Good Luck!

Go with low heat with a heat gun, don't want to burn the paint. If it's a hair dryer, have at it at full heat, I really don't think a hair dryer can get hot enough to burn the paint.
Mine was foil too and i (very carefully) took a razor blade to start a corner when it was hot and pulled it up a little and then peeled with my fingers. It's going to keep tearing, but stick with it and you'll get it.
Then take some WD40 or goo gone to get the rest of the adhesive off.

Hair dryer so it doesn't melt the decal to the paint. Get some Goo Gone or use something like that and spray it on while its warm and rub your finger on it until it starts to peel up. I had a plastic stick on one that I took off like this.

Hair dryer on highest setting, should get hot enough to get a corner to start peeling up, should peel away fairly easy after that. I wouldn't try razor blade, you have to be real careful not to scratch paint. Wd-40 has always worked on getting the residue glue off for me as well...

Fishing line might be safe than razor blade.

I have had good luck with just letting it set in direct sun and using a plastic putty knife to carefully scrape it off, then some WD40 or Goof Off to clean up the residue.

Good luck
