Removing sticker from delicate surface.

I need your guy's help. I have a sticker of Pebbles riding Dino on the dashboard of my roadmaster and I can't get it to come of using the traditional picking at it with my finger. I tried heating it up with a blowdryer and no luck. I am looking for some tricks that you may know that might help me get this off of there.

Thanks and have a great day!

Use some alchohol or acrysol and just rub on it with a rag with that stuff on there. It will take some time but will loosen it up.

If the alcohol does work (probably will) I use this stuff called "Sticker Shock" it works really well, got it at pep boys for a few $, would probably want to make sure its ok to use if those materials though, I've only used it on metals.

Goo gone works good...whatever you used i would clean the dash afterwards so that it doesnt fade it or anything

I like using Ronsonol Lighter Fluid (the kind for Zippo type lighters) It's always worked well for me.

Use Goo-Gone, if that doesn't work get an extremally sharp flat razor and gently, gently gently you can work it off... I work the furniture department of a Burlington Coat Factory, and little kids always run up and put stickers on everything, so I've done it many, many times and have yet to knick anything...
