      What's the best way to remove decals?

      I applied water slide decals to my loco a number of years ago and I would like to remove them and apply different decals.  What's the best way to remove decals?

       

      Thanks

      That would depend on what you applied over the decals to seal them.  If you didn't do that, then Micro-set or 91% Isopropyl Alcohol should work quite easily.

      An overnight soak in water with a bit of dish-soap might work, depending on how well you sealed them. If you sealed them well, then you may have to lightly sand through the sealer to expose the decal, or remove the sealer with some solution.
