    just had me van in the sign writers for some new decals, and to be honest the new ones look great, but the lazy so n so's never washed the van after removeing the old ones, if they had asked for a clean van fair enough ad have scrubbed the old girl up, so now the problem i have is ghost decals and old adhesive all over the van and next to the new decals, whats the best way to remove them? t cut? g3? some kinda solvent?
    thanks in advance
    steve

    ive used autoglym intensive tar remover and wd40 in the past, both worked
    Give the paintwork a good wash afterwards

    Polish may work, less harsh than t cut.
