    Default How best to remove painted pin strip names and symbols

    I bought a used Trike, in excellent shape, but has painted names on back and some religious symbols that I want to remove. What is the best way to remove them without damage to the clear coat?

    thanks,

    William , try white compound, even after removal , it will always be there as a ghost image! Unfortunately a repaint will be needed.

    Welcome to the Gang from Western Colorado.

    You might try Easy Off Oven Cleaner, spray on a micro fiber rag and rub ... it has worked for me before ... just be careful and test it in an inconspicuous spot first, not all clear coats are alike.

    Perhaps a custom vinyl graphic wrap can be made to cover what you're trying to "erase"?

    Other then that, depending on what type of paint was used and how long it's had to cure, as Frankie said, only a repaint will truly get it gone.

    Good luck, and welcome to the site William...

    If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
