Default Worst decals ever!!!


The decals on my Ranger have got to go. The decals are two feet wide and span the entire length of the truck. The thing is they've been on there for 16 years! Needless to say they are rather brittle, what is the best way for me to remove them?

These things are embarressing. The Ranger deserves to look good!
