I picked up a Gottlieb Gigi today at the flea market. Everything works great other than needing a good play field cleaning/waxing and a few bulbs.
The the address was scratched out on the vendor label, but the rest of the label remains. How is the best way to remove this?

Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:

Goo gone or goof off. Test in an inconspicuous area in case it reacts badly with the paint.

I’ve had it covered in a coating of Goo-Gone for awhile, but it isn’t doing much. I’ll let it soak some more.
Thanks for the prompt reply........Denny

Quoted from Sea_Wolf:

If the WD 40 doesn’t work, I’d moisten the edges with mineral spirits and gently work with a new single edge razor blade. Good Gone is ok but Goof Off is basically benzene and xylene and will eat into the paint.
As a painting contractor I’m constantly having to remove stickers and tape. It all depends on the surface and how strong the adhesive is. Either way, you might lose some of the webbing.

It took awhile, but this approach worked. Applied several rounds of Goo-Gone with my finger while carefully scraping with new single-edged blades. Gave it a light buffing with some polishing compound afterwards and it turned out pretty nice.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
