Default Vinyl Decall Removal

I know I can use a heat gun heat it up and remove it like that. But what about the 3m removing disc that you can get. Does it hurt the paint of the vehicle.

I have a vinyl decal on my truck I am wanting a change in look. So I am deciding to remove it, then wash and buff the truck. I know I may have a shadow from the decal.

I was wondering if anyone has used it before. What was the results how did they like it. Or should I just do it the old fashion way with a heat gun and peel it all off.

i have used them. they work good, dont do a thing to the paint as long as there isnt any dirt on the surface. and as long as you dont over do it cuz you can burn the paint if you use too much presure in one spot too long.

Used to use it at CEC let it soak on the decal and it will start penetrating the glue around the edges m,akes it easier to peel off, then keep soaking the glue.
