I would say that whilst a vinyl wrap is brilliant unfortunately the vinyl is not wide enough and you will end up with a joint being visible, I speak with knowledge on this. Unfortunately T cut will not remove the difference again I speak from experience on this and after spending many hours trying to remove the marks it does not all you end up with is very sore arms. The adhesive is again a right bugger to remove if you go to a hire shop you can get an adhesive remover.

Hope this helps

Regards

Unless the adhesive has reacted with the paint & damaged it then the adhesive can be removed & the paint underneath will not be damaged. It is unlikely that sticker adhesive will damage the paint. As pointed out use white spirit or meths. As a last resort you can use cellulose thinners but wash straight off with plenty of meths.

After that paint might be dulled but not damaged & can be restored with T cut & polish. Yes it does require a bit of elbow grease.

Hi if your still having a problem removing the sticky stuff from your paint work, try spraying it with WD40. I had a disaster with tar being sprayed all up the front of a new caravan, after try all type of products, l was told it would work. After spraying it with WD40 the tar came off with no effort and no damage to paintwork. Just spray on and leave a few mins then wash off with soapy water. It will clean most things off. Hope this helps. Huggy

I used cellulose thinners all over a sign written Berlingo, the glue came off quickly with no damage to the paintwork.
