Boat Registration Letters

Recommended Posts

MalibuRyan

Hey Crew, 

Just ordered my factory matching letters from Dome Numbers. 

Question is, how/what are you guys using to take off the old registration numbers easily without having any issues with the residue or damage to gel coat?

Appreciate all the help from everyone as always. Hope everyone is staying safe and can't wait to get the boat out!

Ryan

Whatever you do, do not let that solvent anywhere near plastic, vinyl etc.

Heat gun or hair dryer works wonders.  Warm the letters up and then it should peel off easily.....or just let it sit in the hot sun for a few hours and it does the same thing as the heat gun.

If that was the cae, my letters would be at the bottom of the lake.  IME you heat and/or chemistry.

The sun/heat doesn't cause them to fall off, but makes it very easy to peel them off.

Peel off old stickers, remove any excessive goo with WD40, clean area with acetone, apply new numbers
