    <Thanks everyone. I chickened out on trying the chemical methods, but thanks for the input. I found a local pinstriper, Painter John, here in Jacksonville, Fl. <He carefully used 1,000 grit wet sand paper and two compounds, to remove the names from the trunk, then polished the areas. There are no shadows <visible (you can not tell they were ever there)—a really great, if expensive job. Anyway, no one calls me Joe anymore.

    Easy Off oven cleaner followed with super fine polishing compound. The easy off will not harm painted surfaces but the paint used for lettering is sign paint which is easily removed with oven cleaner. Before decals became the norm for putting company names on the sides of trucks, sign painting and pin-stripping was all done by hand and this was the standard way of removing it. There are days I wish it was still this way since I found removing the sign paint a lot easier than some of the decals I have to remove these days.

    I have spent the last 2 hrs trying to type this post and I'm at a loss for words as we are all at a loss of a friend. My heart sank when I seen this thread, i was looking forward to talking to Bob again, I guess that will have to wait. I'm still at a loss for words

    WOW stainless steel polish and cleaner works great to spray it on and wipe it's better than goo be gone or goof off. Can be found in home depot or Lowe's I use it to take stickers off of restaurant hoods.
