i removed mine last week with one of those and its easier to just run the wheel on the end of the stripe.. just kinda bump it... just enough to roll the edge of it so you can grab it and then just pull it off slowly.. just keep your pulling hand close to where it is coming off of the truck so the stripe dont tear.. this way you dont have to worry about burning the paint nor do you have to worry about the glue staying on your truck
During the 25 years that I spent running an automotive trim business, applying and removing stripes of all descriptions every day, I never once used the 3M wheel that you describe here. I found them to be too slow, as well as impractical for larger decals, and often unnecessary. If the stripe has not been on but for a few months to a couple of years, it will usually peel off on a hot day, or use a heat gun on the lower setting to release the glue on colder days. If the glue does not come up with the vinyl, use 3M Adhesive remover to wipe it off. Remember to pull the old stripe off slowly and at as sharp an angle as possible in order to minimize the likelihood of the stripe pulling paint or clear coat off with it.
