    I own a digital Vinyl Graphics shop and did custom paint for about 9 years on HD's. My suggestion, since you're mostly trying to save the chrome, is use enamel reducer because it will soak into the old tape good before it evaporates. Lacquer and MEK and stuff like that evaporate really quickly. Use a plastic squeegee or bondo spreader and everything should come right off.

    I ended up using a plastic ice scraper(found under the seat of an old car)after keeping it wet for a while. then I finished it off with some thinner and steel wool..came out good... Thanks everyone for the ideas...http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...inblack005.jpg Anyone need an old Pontiac??http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...inblack002.jpg

    i think it just hangs in the air for a long time. i work at a body shop and next to it was a mag and alum casting foundry they had something over there oil fired? and if the wind was blowing just right you could smell it like hot sand and oil smell . i would get very small pin fish eyes in the finsh the only time i would get any was when they fired them up and the wind was blowing just right
