Had a tube frame follow me home today and we think it is a 1050. No motor but 2 hoods. One hood is from a GT14. The other hood has Bolens down both sides. The decal on the left side that identifies the tractor has been painted over with gray spray paint. The right panel has the decal with the patent applied for numbers and location of mfg. Is there any way to remove the paint from the decal without destroying the decal? Am thinking of trying some lacquer thinner on a rag to start with. Any suggestions would be appreciated. :help:

Paint thinner might do it but you have to be careful not to rub off the sticker. I would do a test spot with a Q tip.
That is what I had in mind. Trying a place away from the decal first and see what happens. Probably a cheap brand of paint so hopefully it won't be bad to take off. It has stayed on good being out of door for quite some time. Long enough to seize the steer up. Time for the BP Blaster again.

sometimes peanut butter,, or vegetable oil will do the trick or even WD40 which is fish oil.. No abrasives..Be patient,,It takes awhile.

I have worked on it some and down close to the original grey paint. No sign of any decal, on the side panel or on the frame by the clutch/brake pedal. Will wait till it warm up and try some of your suggestions. Meanwhile will post some photos for you to ponder over. (New Topic)
