    Litespeed Tuscany - decal removal

    Hi y'all

    Have a Litespeed Tuscany 105 from 2003 and the decals are starting to look pretty bad. My idea is to just remove the decals and leave it with a naked Ti finish. I've read around and heard I should use acetone to remove the decals, and then finish with goo gone. If anybody has any experience with this process, any tips are very appreciated.

    So, how'd it go?

    I'm about to remove the stickers from my Teramo frame. I figure I'd try Acetone first. If that doesn't work, I'll just soak each sticker (one section at a time) with WD-40. That normally works for me.

    Update: Just removed some decals off my Teramo frame with Acetone. Cut up a discarded T-shirt and wet that with acetone.

    Yeah, they come right off with acetone.
