Older Defender side stripe graphic

Older trucks come with that side stripe graphic. Is this a decal that can be removed or painted on? I like them but they do date the truck.

They are decals. When I removed them from my '83, portions came off very easily, while others left a horrendous residue. Goo Gone is your friend. If you are repainting, remove them.

So a good hot hairdryer and some Goo Gone and one might be able to get it off easy? I imagine the color difference underneath is night and day with the other paint exposed to the elements for 20+ some odd years.

Thanks, to my surprise they actually still make them... but are expensive!

That's what I used to take it off on 90

The later decals like Daniel shows are much easier to get of with acetone and a heat gun. The 1983 graphics are a totally different animal. I developed a whole new language working to remove them. It was that hard and took that long.

A body shop friend, loaned me a pneumatic radial sticker eraser http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/DYN...&cm_vc=IDPRRZ1. On the stubborn bits, it worked really well. One side took hours (by hand, and with goo gone) the other took a few minutes with the eraser.

No no no, just the old school county stipe. I do not like manufacturer stickers on my trucks.

That's most likely because they haven't worked out the art of removing them without damaging the door panels and bodywork

because the original 83-84 graphics were hand cut,replacements were not offered. I have seen trucks that were damaged where the body shops used paint to complete damaged areas.
