Thanks all. The decal is completely gone what is left the the backing of the decal. We are heading out to the storage on Saturday and I will let you all know what works for us without going down to the aluminum.

You may have to take a little polish to the paint as many times a shadow of the decal will remain

heat gun but be careful it will peel the paint if held too long in one direction. WD-40 usually takes it off be careful with brake cleaner it may remove paint on some surfaces. If not in a hurry peanut butter will loosen the adhesive. I worked at a van conversion factory the guys used the heat gun and a piece of wood shaped into a wedge as a scraper to remove the graphics then lacquer thinner to remove excess adhesive.

PVC pipe cleaner will remove the glue. I used it on removing my truck decals.

We went out this morning and the PVC pipe cleaner also removed the paint down to the metal. Yes it takes it off easy and we are going to continue and then paint.

The WD40 will not hurt the paint and will take the glue off. I tried it on one I had on my TT and it worked no problem, took a little elbow grease, but no damage to the paint at all.

I had no idea it would remove the paint. Like I said I used it on my truck much better paint.
