    I bought a 1992 Nissan pickup with factory vinyl graphics.
    How can I remove these without damaging the paint?

    Get an eraser wheel, put it in a drill and have at it. just dont use it on decals that are on rubber parts (ie. bumper covers). then wipe any residual residue off with some wax and grease remover

    if the graphics are small then the eraser wheel will work well. if its large then that might be an issue unless you get one of the large eraser wheels that go on your buffer. there are a couple other products out there, one called “vinyl off”. sign supply places will carry it like fellers, sign warehouse or beacon graphics. spray it on, let it set for a while and the vinyl should come off somewhat easy.

    They are large graphics.

    i have had success using a heat gun and sometimes on large decals the heat lamps work well ..the left over adhesive cleans up with adhesive remover or the old stand by dupont reducer 8093 ..depending on the color of vehicle you may have a color issue under the decals so you may spend sometime with the buffer

    definately agree with the heat as well. if you have a curing lamp or a halogen work lamp and a heat gun you’ll need that as well.
