DIY guide, an easy one!

Well today is my 4 year anniversary of owning the dub, so I figured, why not do something I've been putting off all this time.
I read about this on here back in '02 when I first joined, plus my product came in today. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Airbag decal removal from sunvisors
materials:
- isopropyl alcohol, 70%, grocery store variety
- papertowels
- goo gone(I used the gel)
- about 30 minutes

1. Fold one papertowel sheet a little larger than the decal, soak with alcohol, and apply on top of decal.
2. Press down, and let it soak for 15 minutes.

3. Pull back the papertowel, the decal is ready to be removed, so start peeling. Should peel off in one whole piece.

4. Wipe down the area with the alcohol papertowel. Wait a few minutes, then hit it with goo gone to get any remaining sticky residue.
(in this pic I haven't applied the goo gone yet)

5. Lastly, finish the job with applying your favorite interior cleaner.

yea.. if you don't let them soak a bit they're a PITA to get off.
I also got that sticker about 6 months ago and ran into the same problem of it falling apart while i tried to peal it off.
nice diy http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
