My Cadillac dealership put their corporate sticker on the back of my car. Its not the plastic tag type but a press on label type sticker with dealerships name and address.

Any suggestions on the best way to remove it without damaging the paint,

Thanks

spray exactly 4.56 squirts of googone. no more no less. let dry for about 6 minutes and 35 seconds. then u need a polyurathane plastic knife. color doesnt matter but if its not white it probably wont work. wrap the knife in a lint free microfiber cloth that has been washed 5-7 times. now heres the tricky part. get a can of wd-40. spray it on that knife. now put the knife down. ull need it later for the last step. with ur fingers dipped in a cup of soapy water, carefully start peeling the TOP LEFT CORNER OF THE STICKER. i cannot stress that enough. top left corner only. this is while looking at the sticker from outside the car. once it starts to peel, grab the knife and put it on the drivers seat. keep peeling the sticker tho. occasionally, spray the backing with a 40-60 solution of alcohol and bug and tar remover. after u reach about halfway, grab the knife u told u to put on the drivers seat and throw it over the roof of the car. the sticker should come off automatically.

or you could just get dental floss and take it off with the floss. or fish line. but thats if u wanna do it the easy way.

I typically use a blow dryer and fishing line to remove stickers and badges from my cars. Than clean the area with Adam's all purpose cleaner.

Just heat up the item you are trying to remove a little bit, than use the fishing line to remove it.

yep fishing line works great....monofilament not braided. I put a hair dryer to it for about a minute, then spray some turtlewax label & sticker removal on the sticker/badge/emblem, then just work the fishing line towards you. afterwards, I use alcohol to remove excess residue, then wash and wax the small area.

Use a hair dryer. Don't let it too hot.

I have done this many times and its works just fine.

In the future, just tell them your car is not a billboard, and they have to remove it before you buy.

Yeah, I order almost every car I buy and tell them no dealer badges or stickers. One did it it anyway, but I was able to scrape it off with the salesman's jaw bone.

monofilament? Not braided? You know your fishing lines huh? I have a Bass boat and live to fish. This is why I need to go to florida. You fish and golf? Let me guess you are a Bass pro also? What the hell I'm doing something wrong.

He had a sharp jawbone huh? Should have made him get on his knees and smacked him on the back of the head while he took them off. Then ask him what he has learned today. The wife knows this line well.:crybaby: Just joking but not really.

yep year round golf and fishing in Florida. I wouldn't say I'm a bass pro but bass fishing is my favorite! I also love to fish for reds, tarpon, flounder, and grouper

When I was in my 20's I tried my hardest to become a Bass pro. Doing tournaments and trying to get sponsors. That isn't that easy up here to get done. Maybe if I was more south that would have been different. I started with a little 17ft boat and won tournaments against guys with 30 thousand dollar boats all the time. I still do tournaments but am more relaxed about it. The guys that made it up here had their own money to fund at first until they got a good sponsor. I didn't have that money. I know where the CT record for Large mouth Bass is right now if it makes it through the winter. I will be on top of it's spawning bed this spring. Hope I can trick it to bite. For now I will fish in a snow bank I guess:cookoo:

I like peacock bass also. A supercharged Bass but as you know we don't have them here.
