    Default How to remove factory decals from my '02 so I can paint it?

    I'd like to pull off all of the factory decals off my '92 XP so I can get a new updated (non neon) color scheme. What is the best way to safely remove the decals? Thanks..

    Default Hair dryer....

    Use a hair dryer on high heat, aimed fairly close to the decal. It'll take a minute of so to heat the glue, but once the glue gets hot, it should begin to release the bond.
    Looking for tips and advice, researched articles on carbs, spark plugs and general maintenance can be found at Snipes Korner. You can also follow me on "Twitter".

    Quality parts at low prices, visit Seadoowarehouse right here in our own forum. Please PM me if you are having a problem finding what you need!

    Is your jet ski fast? Do you want your XP or RXP to stand out? I know a place that has what you need to make it faster. Make your jetsksi a muscle craft, not just the ordinary, standard stock ski.

    Seen my GTX?... Those awesome graphics can be purchased from JetSki Detailing. Tell them Seadooforum sent you.

    Ever wonder what the inside of your 787cc engine looks like. Want to identify the parts, check out my thread on the 787. I'm sure there is something for everyone who want to learn about the internal parts.

    Thanks. I noticed I had a typo in my last message. My machine is actually a '92 not an '02. So once I have my decals off, is there a certain kind of paint I need to use? Can I use spraypaint? I saw some paint on Overtons.com that was specifically made for PWC as kind of a restorer/colorchanger. Does anyone have any experience with that? Thanks.

    I just repainted my 1989 bombadier with white rattle can lacquer and it did A-OK so far. Am having some decals made for it next week.
