Greetings All,
New on here. Quick question, what is the best way to remove original decals from a titanium frame? I have a 2004 Tuscany and the decals are cracked and chipped a bit. I have some new decals coming but want to remove the originals without damaging/scratching the frame. I have heard/read a few different ways, blow dryer, Goo Gone. Which is the best safest way.

Thanks for any info.

Okay, I will answer my own question..........................

FYI, Blow dryer, plastic scraper and clean up the rest with Goo Gone Citrus Cleaner. Ti tubes look spotless, no scratches, and bike smells good enough to eat!!

CIAO! :thumbsup:

A little heat seems to work the best for removing decals from ti frames. I've used a heat gun with good success before.
I did not use a heat gun.... I just went at it with what I had in the garage (goo-gone, gasoline, plastic scrapers). I got my '03 stickers off... but it took more elbow grease than I expected...

I will definitely use a heat gun next time!

Cheap Wally Mart hair drying, and fingernail remover..Worked like a charm. Only speaking for myself, I ain't scaping my TI...:D

Paint Stripper. (Strip-eze, Kleen-strip - whatever they have in Home Depot for cheap)

Takes no elbow grease, and about 30 seconds.
