Air bag decals.. Before I do something stupid....

Hello, I HATE the look of the decals on th sun visors in my Camaro... Has anyone else removed them ? Is it against the law (don't know how this would be I forced) I tried to remove them with a blow dryer , but they just will not come off... Any ideas ? Anyone just cover them ? Not a big deal, just looks horrible.. Thanks..mjclemm..

The OLs hair dryer worked for me after over a year of owning it. One side peeled off in 1 swipe, the other came off in chunks. I used my thumbnail to pry.
Just make sure and dont leave the dryer in 1 spot too long or the plastic will get soft.
A little alcohol to wipe away any dried on glue and youre all set.

I tried in vane to get them removed without causing damage to the visor material itself. And this was when the car was only 1 week old! Maybe I should have waited but figured it would be even harder...

I said F it and had some custom ones made:


Reggie is still selling my design on his site:
INTERIOR ACCENT DECAL

Bottom right.

Yes tried and removed my sticker on the drivers side on my last Camaro, it left lots of adhesive and found other stickers would not stay stuck on the same spot...so I think the decal covers over the other decals is a good idea.. think I will order some my self!

Mine are not static cling. They are true adhesive backed decals.

Sorry, I didn't catch that transition to taillight covers .

I get all my decal stuff from the guy's site in my previous post. He does custom stuff if you have an idea and the patience....
