I agree paying someone does seem like a better idea, especially if you plan on keeping it for long, it'll prove worth it. Wouldn't mind trying to make the attempt once though just to have some fun

If you are confident in your ability to take on this task then by all means go ahead. many do. At the end of the day its just a big sticker, much unlike other types of jobs someone can take on with their vehicles that involves real risk and in that a potential to cost you big.

The worst that can happen is that you do a bad job and need to peel it off, no scratches or any lasting damage.

Pretty much, and the price for materials is really nothing to worry about either.

The worst is having a lot of glue to remove, which a product like GooGone can help with, just have to make sure its paint safe. Last thing you want to do here is damage the paint.

If you're using a vinyl that leaves adhesive that easily, you're definitely using the wrong vinyl and it's of some garbage quality.

Goo gone can also do leaps of damage to a vehicle so I wouldn't really use that either.

Get a specific automotive adhesive remover, but you can always go at it with 70% IPA in a 50/50 mix in a spray bottle first to try the lightest solution first.

Goo gone should be fine on small areas like an emblem, but on a large body that would cause some worry.

Once you get it off asap and completely alcohol wipe it off after. That stuff will eat through clear coat.

Probably the best way to attack this is by starting off with the least harmful things and working up from their.

Clay bar is the less lethal and has been said to remove some adhesive's

Very light adhesive and a clay bar would take it out. But don't get it confused, clay bars can do an extreme amount of damage if the wrong one is used, if there is insufficient lubricant, and if you use the wrong technique.
