Hello
I want to strip a toyota corolla GB version (auriol) AUTOart from his decals.

I have no idea to start this.

How can i get the decals loose?

First try using some really sticky tape, apply it to the decal and often it will pull right off. Nail polish remover should only be used to remove tampos (which look like decals but are actually paint). If it really is a decal and the tape doesn't work, you might get some decal solvent solution from your local hobby shop. Lastly, most people just scrape them off with their thumbnail, but be very careful.

Good luck! :cheers

IF it's a decal, then you can use Micro Set and a thin brush. Just brush it on, and keep brushing it, trying to get one of the hairs of the brush under the decal and just keep doing that until the decal comes off.

If it's a tampo, you'd have to use non-acetone nail polish remover and q-tips, but be very careful. Dissolve the NPR with water and have a 2nd q-tip handy to wipe off excess NPR every time.
