removing decals from transom

Hi Folks,

First off - many thanks for all the boat buying advice. I settled on a 2004 Beneteau 36.7.

I'm in the process of removing the decals from the transom and getting ready to re-name her and was wondering if anyone had any tips.

The declas were only on for 4 years, so they came off quite easily..

So far, I've heated the decals with a heat gun, peeled them off then used some asetone to remove any left over adhesive. Unfortunately, the area that was covered with the decals shows up as a slight yellow tint. Any suggestions on how to get back to white? I'd like to start off with a clean, white transom before applying the new decals.


Many Thanks in advance.

CB
