    Indeed, besides the sugar trick for labels, I have utilized a Dremel rotary grinding machine to remove plastic lettering, Bondo household putty to fill in embossed areas, and a set of very fine files, with which I remove the identifying marks on metal parts.

    Clearly, I am the ideal demographic for the branded tee-shirts with which these websites sustain themselves. (Of course, I don’t see such déclassé adverts, thanks to Privoxy and NetBarrier.)

    …..Hmm. I wonder if sugar will scrub the gigantic Carmax logo off of the back of my car…

    I recommend covering the entire cellphone with some tape before starting or you may end up with sugar where you don’t want it.

    Carmax and similar vinyl decals are easy – you can warm it up with a hair dryer, then take a razor blade and (carefully!) peel away.

    I was about to resort to that myself, then after running the car through a carwash, the letters peeled just a little – enough to let me just peel them straight off. The trick is to do it slowly.

    Smooth as a cherubs baren ass.

    Does that hairdryer-and-razorblade trick work for bumper stickers too?

    For bumper stickers and other stickers I use a product called Un-Du it liquifies the sticky glue making it easy to remove, without damaging anything.
