Removing labels & Odd Freewheel issue

I just picked up this bike sans front wheel, seatpost, and saddle. The blue bands are somewhat torn up and I'd like to remove them. The bit I got off had a foil like texture.

Any recommendations? Hot air gun? Acetone didn't work.

Second question - The freewheel / cassette (I don't know which) doesn't match the 3 freewheel and one cassette tool I have. It almost looks like the 6th cog is a lockring. I think it's similar to a Shimano 600 14-34t Uniglide Freewheel listed on Ebay.

Are there 2 notches for a freewheel remover? If not could it be the early shimano Freehub from around 1981 which was held on by the axle/bearing assembly? I.e. very similar to modern freehub but lacks the 10mm allen bold which holds it on...

decals

i used a hot air gun the other day to remove some stickers and such, it worked great and i had it on the low heat. It seemed to soften up the decals and they just peeled off and then i used some goo gone to clean up the area.

Could be Uniglide, where the small cog is indeed the lockring.
Pictures would help.

I'll post pictures tomorrow. I used a hot air gun and some needle nose pliers (to pull the hot foil) and the decorative strips came off.
A little light compounding on a test strip brought out the color and some simichrome did the same for part of the fork. There is some light rust inside the tubes so I sprayed them down with frame saver.

denatured SLX ethanol (alcohol) should completely loosen the glue, making decal removal very easy.
