Has anyone removed decals from a carrera frame without a repaint being required. Fork decals are easy enough but need to remove frame decals without damaging the paint. I can if need be cover existing girlie decals with something bigger but ideally want to lose them all. Respray not a good idea as wife already moaning at spending money on replacing grips and saddle. Help appreciated, have searched and found results for different makes but not carrera,s.

    Are they under the lacquer ? If they are - just ride fast and nobody can read them.

    Depends on the decals, most frame ones are under lacquer while most fork ones are not (making them easy to remove).

    If they are under lacquer it won't be easy to do a nice job on the cheap.

    Not delivered yet but suspect they're under a lacquer, sadly going faster isn't going to do the lads street cred much good as he will have to stop at some point. Forks are easy just the rest to sort. Looks like its going to be a big decal to cover the existing girlie name on the tubes and headset badge to fit.
