    local hardware store sells plastic scraping tools that rival metal blade scrapers. Helps a ton to delaminate the graphic, and whatever adhesive remains can be scrubbed away with any citrus adhesive remover.

    if its a paper decal, saturate it with wd40. then it will just wipe off. should cause no damage to your windscreen.

    Steam would be my first choice. I would be cautious of the alcohol suggestion if your windshield is made of polycarbonate. They don't get along.

    Yes it is a plastic so I would think alcohol and razor blades would be a bad mix.
    It is just a paper decal but I would think wd40 might damage the plastic no?

    No. WD-40 is magic (well kerosene anyway) and works well.

    The three greatest inventions in the history of man are:

    • The Guttenberg printing press
    • Duct tape
    • WD-40
    Experts do not agree on the order of greatness. There is a strong argument also for Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

    Try some wd40 on your bait next time the fish aren't biting. You'll be surprised. The main ingredient in wd40 is fish oil.

    Paper decals are removed using your honey's hand lotion. Smear it on let it set a while and it will come right off.. Adhesive and all.

    DO NOT USE ALCOHOL on plastic windshield, also I would avoid razor blade (it scratches).

    My Harley windshield had special coating and alcohol took it off?


    WD40 & fingernail works best (or old credit card)!

    If you use hand lotion there will be no need for even a finger nail. It will lift right off.
