Removing OLD OLD OLD State Stickers
I recently purchased an S2 9.2A and am looking forward to getting it wet in the next few weeks. While the PO took great care of the boat in general, either he was a collector of stickers or didn't know how or want to remove old ones. Regardless, I have 12 - 15 state registration stickers stuck in various places to the transom, and an equal number of "yacht club" stickers up and down the mast (painted mast).
Since many of these are super-old, baked on, sun-bleached, etc, I was wondering the best way to remove them. My initial thought is a heat gun, plastic scraper, elbow grease, and some acetone to remove the residual goo.
Anyone have any experience with this or any other recommendations?
Thanks very much.
