i have two (2) bumper stickers I wish off of my car. They are on the glass. Only my "Where Was Your American Pride Before September 11th" sticker gets the privilege of being on the bumper.

anyone know fool-proof, non-scarring ways of ridding vehicles of these unwanted obstructions of view?

<font color=slate>well, i don't have any experience removing bumper stickers, but i figure it's still a sticker on glass. i had some mirrors that were covered with stickers, since it's glass couldn't you get under the corner with a pin or something and peel off as much of it as possible and then rub the remaining adhesive and paper with a rag and some alcohol or something. but then bumper stickers are probably designed to take alot more wear and tear than standard stickers.

edit: took out the smartass remark, didn't see the "on the glass" part.

Go to walmart or wherever and buy one of those single edge razor blade paint scrapers and get a can of WD-40 or a similar spray lubricant. The oil in WD-40 breaks down adhesives very well. Once you get all of the sticky off, use soap and water to clean off the WD-40.

Blowdryer to melt the glue.. i think orange oil will get the remaining goo off.. i dont *think* its corrosive on the paint but im not sure.

heh.
nice use of the picture, mark.
i shall try the WD40 way first, because i have tried the razorblade thing and it leaves the glue streaks.
thanks for the suggestions.
