    Best way to remove stickers from chrome bumper

    Just bought a 1977 Cadillac Coupe Deville with probably 34 year old AAA stickers on rear chrome bumper. What is best way to remove without scratching chrome. Thanks for any ideas,
    Dave

    Can start with something like Goo Gone.

    Try to get what you can off... move onto something like clay or chrome cleaner for the residue.

    Try using a hair dryer first to soften up stickers then follow up with Murr's suggestion.

    Steel wool is a good way to get the remaining gunk off, too. I use steel wool and glass cleaner or an all-purpose cleaner as a lubricant.

    Being 34 years old, that chrome should be of a much better variety than is out there today > Meaning harder.

    I'd give it a go with new razor blade first, then Goo Gone (or similar) to get th left over gunk off.

    Just be gentle.

    Brand new razor that has been dulled on one edge I.e. rubbing it several times across a window. Slowly and carefully work the razor under the sticker. Once you have all of the sticker off take mineral spirits on a rag and wipe the sticky stuff off.

    +1 on the hair dryer (or heat gun) first. Heating up the glue almost always makes the rest of the steps much easier and quicker..

    Spray it with Toilet Cleaner like Mr Muscle and then after 1 to 5 min. scrub it with cloth. It will remove the residue or the adhesive of the sticker from your chrome.
