vinyl sticker removal

On the side of my mustang I have the vinyl stickers of lines and the word mustang. What is the best way to take them off?

I've used a hair dryer on high and rubbing alcohol, others have used a heat gun, be careful about staying in one place too long, and a 3M adhesive removal product. Seems to be a lot of ways but it takes time to do it right.

I used a hair dryer and then some bug and tar remover. Take your time when doing it to avoid any paint peeling issues. All in all it took about half an hour to do.

Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

Blow dryer and cheap hair spray or rubbing alcohol works best from what i have used.

I am thinking about taking them off so it will give the car a cleaner look. Plus I might want racing stripes sometime soon so it would look awkward having both.

actually it's not that uncommon. I ditched mine for reverse c strips.
