Removing old decals - 3M wheel
« on: April 09, 2011, 06:10:56 PM »
Hi all, I've got an 8 yr old aluminum sided TT with weathered, faded decals/graphics. I know this has been discussed many times before and there are lots of techniques but I was wondering if anyone has ever tried the 3M Stripe Off rubber wheel that is used on a drill or rotary tool?
I've heard that many have tried solvents and heat guns, but most say this is a huge job and often causes damage to the painted aluminum siding.
Anyone ever used this device with success? Or maybe a different, better way of removing the grahics?
thanks.....

If you are talking about the eraser wheel it should work but on white there is a chance it will cause it to stain. So I would start in a spot that is not as noticeable. If it is a large strip it will take more than one wheel.

Thanks to the 2 of you that responded. On another RV site, I got lots of people that recommended the 3M wheel so I'm going to give it a try rather than using the other methods of removing decals.
