Main cabin privacy screen

G'day all,

As can be seen from attached photo of main cabin window, on my L400, privacy screen/sticker it is in need of replacement. What method/products should I use to remove old screen?

Will acetone eat away at window?

Thanks in advance, Brett

Hi Feebs,
Apparently acetone is the go.
Lagoon hull window decals for sale.

Let's know how you get on. Are you using Lagoon OE decals or the material used for printed advertising on bus windows, etc.?

Merci Tuskie.

It will take a lot of acetone - very slow going.

Using an after market product - same as car advertising ...


Will see how it goes, before increasing Lagoon's profit, if it doesn't last.

Cheers

I've not tried it on a boat but I'm told that by soaking some foam with vegetable oil and attached to the window for several hours it will melt the adhesive, I have used this on sticking plaster and it worked , I used olive oil and it took 15 minutes so it may be worth a try on a small area and if it works easily it will save a lot of trouble with acetone running all down the side of your boat.

I've done it with acetone. Easy. To replace the original screens I got a sign writer to computer cut vinyl panels. Mine is done in horizontal stripes rather than dots. Looks good works great.

Re: Main cabin privacy screen

Thanks for everyone's input.

So I tried olive oil - unfortunately this didn't work.

Acetone worked but was slow going.

Lagoon have a how to guide on this - they say to use a diluted solvent. I have since found out from Lagoon that this is MEK (Méthyl Ethyl ketone). I purchased some from my local auto paint supplier.

Applied with a soft paper towel, sticker ( or is it some type of paint) just dissolved away.

Hope this helps.
