Default Removing a bumper sticker...

We have bought a new car and want to save the bumper sticker off the old car
for the new one.
Any way to do that? Not likely, but maybe...

It says "Where the hell is Chitna?" Not likely to get back there to buy a
new one. But if anyone in Chitina is reading this and can send me one...
Though I can't image what you would be reading it on.

Heat gun or hair dryer will get it off.

If it's plastic and not too old, it can be fairly easy. If it's
paper, very hard.

Bub is probaby right.

Where the hell is Chitna anyhow?

My son simply pulled it off and reapplied it. Sometimes ignorance is bliss.

Chitina is about a 4 hour drive northeast of Valdez Alaska. It has a
hundred or two people. I saw the bumpersticker when in McCarthy, which is a
3 hour drive beyond Chitina and is supposedly the most remote spot on earth
you can (almost) drive a car to. You had to be there to appreciate the
sticker.

Isn't that what makes bumper stickers a bit silly? No one who sees it is
going to appreciate it.

Yes, but we know what it is.

Years ago I had a cockatiel, and had a bumper sticker that said "Have you
hugged your cockie today?"
It was fun watching the people behind me at traffic lights. Then someone
vandelized it!

Of course it is funny because you can't really hug a cockatiel; they are
much too small.

Heat, I thought I heard heat with a plastic scraper could both remove
it, and not damage any finish. Then cleaned up with an adheasive
remover. Or the lazy way, put a bumpersticker you like over it.

Moot point now, since his kid peeled it off successfully. But he wanted to
REUSE the sticker, not just get it off.
