Foo - Fox Decals

On my fox f100 rlc, the little gray decals began to peel because my zip ties on my speedometer screwed em' all up. These buggers are really stubborn to peel off so I was wondering if there was any way that'd make it easier to take them off.
Thanks for any help, I've seen a few forks with them off and I was wondering how it was done.

Are they LBD's? I would't take them off.
what? they are just silver fox decals, that was taken before the zip ties messed them up. How do I get them off?

Use a blow torch and just burn them to a crisp.

WD40 and careful use of a razor blade?

Contractor strength Goo Gone?

I have a pinpoint heatgun just for jobs like this. Clean the residue with Goo-Gone.
What if they are load bearing decals like Crackerjab suggested? Same procedure for removal?

No, if they are indeed LBD's then you'll need to reinforce the structure before replacing with transparent LBD's. It's tricky and you have to do it quickly.
I haz the long sharp fingernails that will do the trick (check out the scratches on the glass on my office door from me taking off the doink's putting scotch tape on there.
However, I cannot guarantee a white paint job will be left behind, but I do have white out. And I do charge by the hour btw.

Hairdryer/blowdryer will be enough heat for most, pick a corner to start, pull up slowly at 90 degrees, point hairdryer where label meets paint but from backside, apply a gentle pulling force but let the heat do the work. Wear a glove on the hand pulling the label as your hand or fingers will feel like it's burning otherwise as even hair dryers can be quite warm where the hot air exits the dryer.

Here is the old thread I was parodying at a poor attempt at an April Fools joke. Some of you caught on.
