I recently bought a bike which has been resprayed recently with the previous owner's name on downtube and seat tube. It's a Harry Hall 531 frame nicely painted and I want to take the (one coat) lacquer and decals underneath off. I took it to Visual Impact (Bristol) who do Argos's decalling. They suggested I phone Argos which I'll do tommorrow.
But has anyone done this? I don't want to respray the entire frame. Just want to remove the lacquer from over the decals, then peel the existing (vinyl) decals off. Then affix new Harry Hall decals from Visual Impact and apply lacquer over top. Applying and then peeling off some sticky backing in the shop brought some of the single coat of lacquer off and showed how delicate the decal underneath was. Steve
