Question Possibly re painting my Ranger?

I have a 1999 Ford Ranger Sport. There are multiple scratches towards the back of the tailgate. It has these weird "tribal" like graphics on the side and I was wondering if that I got it re painted would I have to do away with those graphics?

look like decals to me. Get a hair dryer. 3M also makes an adhesive remover that will help remove them! I use it on "dealership" stickers on the tailgate!!!

Good luck removing the decals. They look to be in good shape, so you should be okay. Mine were too far gone, and refuse to come off without removing the paint with them.
