    This should be fun. We have a client who ordered magnets for their fiberglass/aluminum minibus. and apparently the sign company put a double sided adhesive on the back to "make them stick" about 9 years ago. Now they would like us to remove and re-wrap it professionally.

    We would appreciate any any suggestions on removing these delightful graphics?

    Fishing line between magnet and vehicle? Pull back and forth and it saws away the double sided adhesive (if it's not too thin). Worth a try and be prepared to remove a lot of glue. Decals looking to, be in great shape BTW =D

    Have them take it to a body shop and do it correctly and then, patch it in.

    what a mess. try a fishing line behind the magnet. I've had people (taxi cabs) glue magnets on. If you heat it up, you can start to pull it off in pieces. Then I use rapid remover and a plastic scraper to get it clean. BUT its not going to be nice or easy to do.
