Step 1: So I Hated The Printed Decals On My Forks

Got a good deal on some new forks for my mountain bike but I hated the graphics. Mostly because I don't want anyone to know I'm riding RST shocks... So I wanted to remove them. Trouble is they're not just decals. Some chump decided to print them on the fork. On a whim I decided to see if adhesive tape might remove it... SUCKSESS!!
&quot;Try at your own risk&quot;<br>I'd say be really certain the graphic is paint and not a label with adhesive. If it's a really good adhesive like 3M 467, you'll be a long time trying to get the residue off. Also if it's paint on paint be careful - if the base paint is epoxy powder then you're probably safe with this approach.
simple and clean, great work!
Nice one! Gaudy graphics on everything make me want to find another species to be a part of.
Good info, thanks for sharing.
Nice one!
What a cool way to remove decals!
