    i used the eastwood pneumatic rotary removal tool.
    (Item #30216 Brand: Eastwood) i had bought it for the wire wheels, but it came with the Adhesive Eraser Wheel, saw i used it to remove the decal. worked great. does generate heat , so you need to move around so the heat does not build up

    The Eraser Wheel works really well in almost any drill, including cordless. They wear out quick so you might need 2, and don't bear down on them too hard.

    Good luck!

    As I recall, it wasn't difficult, just tedious. It takes a lot of scraping, but the adhesive turns soft and gummy. You have to do it in stages.

    I think you are missing the boat on the eraser wheels. Cheap, easy and do little to no damage as long as you keep them moving. if you are trying to save the paint is the the easiest, economical and best on the environment (and your health) solution.

    Not trying to save paint, strip the hood repaint complete front end. So that is why i think sripping is the best way. take hood off also the hatch which also needs painted.

    if you're not trying to save the paint, I bought blasting media at tractor supply and used my media blaster that I bought from harbor freight and it blasted the sticker and paint right off!! no stripping period, the media blasted right through the crusty old sticker!!
