Default Old lettering

To the guys that bought a used truck or changed old lettering on the side. What as the best way you removed all the glue? I have a heat gun Im using to get the lettering off but the residue that is left behind Id like off too.

Goo Gone, also wd-40. You’ll never get rid of the paint fading though.

I just order a wizz wheel that said it will take off decals. It looks like it can go right on a cordless drill

I used to work at a sign shop. I have peeled soooo much vinyl. Use grafx remover, a heat gun, and a sharp hard plastic scraper.

This is why I painted the camo van camo, I was not going to peel anymore vinyl.
