The easiest way I have found is to use a hair drier and heat it up a little then it just pulls off.

strip them off with a heat gun and a plastic razor blade then use a product called 3M adhesive remover, that removes the sticky it wont eat the paint it does strip the wax and is great for removing tar. Eddie

There's a guy here who re-sells commercial vans. He told me that he's got a set up that uses heat lamps.

heat gun and speedy 500 adhesive remover. The 3M stuff is good, the speedy 500 is even better. it dont take a lot of it either!

I work for 3M graphics corp.. I make all of the vinyl that you guys use. All you need is alot of patience and a hair dryer. Don't use a plastic razorblade! It will mar the paint while s****ing with the heat! heat pull heat pull if the glue stays behind use adhesive remover like "RR" said wipe enough to soak the glue and it will rub right off. Good luck we make our 3M graphics to stay put and pull off w/ease!
