Default How to remove bike stickers

I tried removing the stickers on my bike. But the stickers came out a bit bad.
How do I remove the remnants of those stickers now ? :(
To give you an idea, this is how bad it looks !

Go to a local tinker, he will remove it with Rubbing Polish. You can do it yourself but you might overdo it and rub the paint off

If you want to do it yourself, use a blade to do it (please be careful). You will have to be very patient when you are doing it like that else you might put a scratch.

Even i had the same problem on my splendor long back and this is what i did. I took a clean piece of cloth, dipped it in petrol and then rubbed it against the effected area and then cleaned it with a clean cloth did this around twice, the stain had completely vanished like it never existed. So try this it will surely help.

Default Use thinner

To remove the sticky glue, use petrol or paint thinner (any good solvent will do). Pour around 10 drops of thinner in a piece of cloth and rub it on the glue area to see the glue vanish as though it was never there! Caution: The thinner can hurt your skin, be cautious. And do not apply more, can be harmful to paint.
