sticker free sun visors

OK. Whomever sent me their sun visors (don't remember your user name - sorry). One is done and am working on the other one tonight. I also may have thought of a new/easier way to remove the stickers. Going to try that out, and if it works I will write up a DIY

Here's the DIY: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=206936

Someone told me a hair dryer gets them off. Guess that's not really the case? Would a heat gun be too hot?

No a hair dryer works. It just takes 30 ish minutes and is a PIA

The best advice I could give is try and remove them the day you take delivery of your Camaro using a hair dryer. That is what I did and mine peeled right off without any issues. This was the first mod I performed.

My idea was to use isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol), soak a paper towel with it and lay it ontop of the sticker. No dice. It appears that the only method is the hair dryer + putty knife approach.

OK. So I have a theory, well pretty sure its a fact; the older your camaro is the harder it will be to remove your stickers. That in mind, I went online to GM Parts House to find the part number:

http://store.gmpartshouse.com/parts/...onent=Sunvisor

So here's the thing. I'm willing to experiment with this. I'll go halvies with someone on a new visor, and then I'll fiddle with it and see if I can get the sticker off. I'm more than happy to fiddle with this and find a way to get the stickers off, just would like someone to help eat the cost with me.

I got an Idea. Why not just leave them alone, And write it off to being kept orignal. How much are 1967 Camaro's that are all 100% orignal worth? with all orignal stickers in place.. Its something to consider and less of a petty thing to have to monkey with and spend more money. But then again, if you have allready chopped things up and modded it out.......its not a virgin anymore then. its just another camaro thats been played with.

I respect those who want everything 100% original, but in today's world it is unlikely the cars will have the same collectibility 45 years from now as a 67 does today. With that being said... To me it's all about making it my own.

I just got my new visor in, will remove decal later tonight. Ill see if i can prove your theory. It smells fresh so i am assuming it is fresh off the line. Will be using a heat gun and a putty knife. Wish me luck.

This is my passenger side visor. Removed the sticker and it looks real good.

Did yours come on in one big piece? I used a heat gun on mine right away and they peeled off in one big piece.

Yea the passenger one peeled off quick, took like 5 min to do. The driver one though, i think wat happened is i kept the gun on there for too long and i guess it just got more stuck. There is a little piece i cant remove.
