    Which one is the one to stay away from? I have to remove some mylar and need to clean off the adhesive.

    Thanks, I will start with the flour trick and alcohol. If those dont work then I will try goo gone.
    What are you using to heat the mylar prior to pulling? Is a hair dryer sufficient?

    Its an F-14 tomcat. Im pulling the inserts and replacing them and new insert decals. The original inserts are all raised really bad and faded.

    Quoted from CaptainNeo:

    how did you find blue ones? those used to be impossible to find.

    Well, I ordered the set of inserts from planetary pinball. Im still waiting on them so not sure if the set will be exactly like original ones or not.

    I have a really trashed road kings here. I will practice on it before I dive into the F-14.

    Good news. I got all the mylar off with very little effort and zero paint loss. Even all the text on the inserts stayed intact. I used the freeze spray method.
    Next up is to remove all the adhesive. I have an old trashed xenon playfield I will experiment on first.
