Hi all, looking for a little advice.

I have a wet white Ritchey WCS link seatpost and want to remove the decals to give it a more custom look.

I've heard nail polish remover and acetone may be good but am slightly concerned about it removing the paint too.

Anybody have any experience on this? I have seen a lot of 3T stems with decals removed on here.

Thanks in advance!

you could use acetone if the logos are printed on over the clear coat, but if they're underneath you'll need to sand/strip the clear off to remove them.
