Re: Boot strip

In response to Tempests post above, I recently removed some accent striping prior to a repaint of both the cove and boot stripes. I simply used the heat gun. Warm up the glue a little bit and it comes right off - though you want to be careful not to overheat the vinyl to where it begins to melt and it breaks. I took off nearly 200 feet of stripe in about 2 hours - and a good bit of that was repositioning ladders.

A little acetone or MEK afterwards and the glue is gone.
