Removing 3M Front Mask
Posted 10 January 2013 - 06:32 PM
Do I have to peel it off an 1/8 of an inch at a time with my nails or is there a better solution?
Thanks for any help.

I was told by the owner of Extreme Graphics to use steam and not a heat guns. He said that with a hot air gun the heat just keeps on rising and can blister the paint if held in one spot too long. Where steam's max temp is 212 degrees and by the time it get to the 3M shield it is around 190 and is hot enough to help release the adhesive but not hurt the surface. However he also said with the best of care the paint can still be damaged by what ever tools you may use. He quoted me $3,000.00 to remove mine. That included removing the shield, and repainting the front of the coach from the windshield down. He said that the most of that was the labor to remove the shield. He said that he has had coaches that took up to 3 days to remove the shield. I may have him do it next year.

It seems there is no miracle solution. I will use elbow grease and patience.
