    Removing irmscher fuel cap sticker

    on my astra it has an irmscher fuel cap sticker on when i bought it. Anyways i've decided it doesnt go well with the arden blue colour so im wanting it removed. Will they come off easily without damaging the paint or am i best removing the whole fuel cap and buy another and get it sprayed?

    I personally find white spirit is great for shifting any form of glue off the body work. Afterwards I would wash it over with some warm soapy water to remove any left over white spirit.
