A 100 pack of blades is less than 10 dollars as they go dull pretty fast BUT as you refine your style it gets pretty easy to remove a lot of old paint
I am likely to have to redo my bottom in the next year, would you mind expanding on this method? Do you use this like you would for removing the reg sticker from your car? Cant be that way can it? I would think you dig into the gel-coat or worse yet the fiberglass?
