Removal of painted on truck lettering

What do you do to get painted on lettering off?


First; Wipe over the area with a wet cloth to remove some of the oxidation (if there is any).

Next: Take the can of “Oven cleaner” and spray an ample amount onto a damp rag. Make sure you are wearing gloves!

Wipe over the lettering that is to be removed. Wipe only a 12 inch length at a time — if it’s a large area that you are working on.

Wait about 2-4 minutes then rinse with warm water. Do not leave the oven cleaner on the surface for more than 5 minutes. It will eat through the lettering paint down to the surface that you are trying to keep un-damaged!

Repeat this process until about 80% of the lettering has been washed away — before moving to the next 12 inch area.

Grab another clean damp rag, and empty a small amount of an Ajax style cleaner onto it. Use this to wipe off the stubborn stains and specks of paint that were left behind. Use warm water to rinse.

After all of the painted lettering has been removed, wipe over the entire area with Compound to even out the slight discoloration. This comes form the UV rays of the sun which ages the area around the lettering causing the paint to discolor. Wipe off the rubbing compound with a thinner and then apply a wax to finish.
