    Hey 'bashers and customizers:
    I just have a simple question. What is the best way to remove old stickers and the residue that follows? I just got some repro's for one of my G1 Starscreams and need to strip the old rundown stickers off. HELP!!!


    Thanks in advance!
    Jay

    Scratch most of it off with your nails, then use goo gone, then soap and water. Works every time for me.

    I would avoid using alcohol and stick to the Goo gone. There's something about the chemicals used in Goo gone that doesn't seem to affect paint as badly if you start rubbing a painted part. Alcohol, though, will begin to have an effect if you rub with it enough - you'll see your paint start to fade.
