I know you can buff stainless, I just dont know how. I think you have to use some sort of metal polishing compound and a wheel. Have fun!!! :nope

If it is actually graffiti film and not safety film then you should be able to just pull it like TC said. SolarGard changed the adhesive on the graffiti film to make easier to remove. That is what I heard.

Yeah, Graffitti Gard comes off real easy, no adhesive. I do alot of mirrors in malls around me, and I have never had to scrape adhesive. :lol

Uhhhhh....Expert, I did not do that job. However, I did tell your office to use a plastic white hard card or chizler AFTER the adhesive was softened with whatever you decide to use.

Thank you very much and hope it works out for you :cool

OOPS! :shock

There is more than one film supplier that offers film made with adhesive that comes off with the film and is specifically for this type of application.

Too bad on the end result here.

:bingo:homer
