Does anyone know the best way to remove the obnoxious Jaz decal from the back of my aluminum race seat? I've tried a couple things but I'm afraid of scratching the aluminum all up.

Then if there is sticky residue left get some Goo-Gone or pick up some goof-Off from Harbor Freight.

Denatured alcoholol (SP?) works very well to remove the glue after getting decal off scope

I used to remove waterslide decals from old model cars by soaking them in soap and water. thumbs
