I recently bought a bike which has been nicely resprayed but with the previous owner's name on downtube, seat tube & headtube. It's a nicely painted Harry Hall 531C frame. I want to remove theses decals. There is one coat of lacquer - see photo. I took it to Visual Impact (Bristol, UK) who do Argos's decalling. They suggested I phone Argos which I'll do tommorrow.
Has anyone done this? I don't want to respray the entire frame. Just want to remove the lacquer from over the decals, then peel the existing (vinyl) decals off. Then affix new Harry Hall decals from Visual Impact and apply fresh lacquer over top - with a brush? Applying and then peeling off some sticky backing in the shop brought some of the single coat of lacquer off and showed how delicate the decal underneath was. Suggestions appreciated. Steve
