they do sometimes dissolve with nitromorse, but not all for some reason.

Meths sometimes can help.
Also use hot air gun to warm them before peeling off stops them breaking up as easily.

Or use an angle grinder :D

If you haven't got a hot air gun the mrs's hair drier will do the trick.

I use lighter fuel (or clean art if you're an old graphics monkey) to dissolve the glue.

I always use a hairdryer to get them off and lighter fuel to cleam up the glue left on the frame.
