Has anyone tried using boiling water to remove star shield? The star shield on my rocker panels is cracked like spider webs and needs replacing.

I saw boiling water used to remove the black rocker panel decals on a Porsche 911 and thought it might work similarly.

Use a clothing steamer, and then gasoline to remove the adhesive. I've done it twice now to remove starshield.

I used xylene to remove the adhesive. Worked great for me and did not damage the paint underneth but test it first in an inconspicuous location.
