Exclamation Woodgrain vinyl removal

I have a decent set of door panel inserts for my 72 Cheyenne that I want to restore but am unsure of how to start by getting the old vinyl off it chips but not very much so I was wondering if there is and old trick of the trade to getting this stuff off? Thank you for any help/advice

Re: Woodgrain vinyl removal

Woodgrain vinyl decal or woodgrain pattern on vinyl upholestery? A pic could help with answers if possible.
Eather way I would guess it could come off by using a heat gun (carefully) to loosen the adhesive. Then you could peel it off in sections.

The vinyl decal in the door panel inserts themselves sanding has worked so far today but thy could be tedious I asked another member and he also suggested paint remover to get it down to bare metal like I want

Re: Woodgrain vinyl removal

We put ours in a blast cabinet and stiped them then primed and painted.

Re: Woodgrain vinyl removal

That looks amazing Tim I'm going something similar to Ostander's process of sanding them with varying grits but instead of wood grain replication ill be going with a simple semi gloss or even somewhat flat black with polished trim in the process of hand sanding the vinyl of now
