To remove residue from old signage use methylated spirits ( purple stuff ) on an old rag. If you have removed them and you can see where they have been ( usually nice new paint under the stickers and dull around ) then the only way is t-cut to try and get an even colour back.

thanks.

Put stickers all over the rest of the van, then peel them off ... job done!

any eliments , sun, rain etc... And the the paint around it does. The only thing you can do is either recover the area with a solid ( white van then a large white sticker ) or cheapest is t-cut or something same and buff out the ghosting.

Nothing much else can be done other than a respray. I'd go down the road of t-cut.

thanks for that,ill try the t-cut (its a silver van) if that makes any difference to what t-cut is used.

Just get t-cut colour coded to nearest you want. They usually run about �4 in ASDA and that but don't stock a wide choice of colours, black and white only 2 I've seen in ours in S5 but halfrauds will do the lot.

Well what sort of comment do you expect? Paint reacts to sunlight ... pretty much like an exposed piece of film in a camera ... the lettering prevents sunlight. If you remove the lettering, you effectively get a photograph as the unexposed paint fades. No amount of 'T-cut' will get rid of this. A total re-spray is the only answer, as it's impossible to match to a faded paint ... even if you have the correct RAL number. Check out metamerism too before you roll your eyes. :)
