Anyone have an idea on how to get rid of the ugly yellow air bag labels on the sun visors? On the C5 you can peel them of, but not on the C6. Can you spray them black?

A vendor on CF has decals with C6 logos that cover the labels.

Hair dryer or carefully with a heat gun.

I removed only one and used a small bit of paint thinner on the residue. It took most of it off and didn't affect the dye black. The smell lasted only a few hours. I'm holding off on the other until another method is proven to be better.

Here is what I ended up doing.

I bought some of the Inhibisol Solvent, used for Electrical parts/connector cleaning and tried it. I had also tried GOO GONE and SURE SOLV (used by dealers during delivery prep).

Because the Label separated from the backing there still was the plastic/vinyl part left on the visor.
The problem was these cleaners. INHIBISOL, GOO GONE and SURE SOLV did not penetrate the plastic/vinyl, I had to scuff the surface VERY GENTLY with a wire brush. This allowed the cleaners to get to the glue to loosen/soften. I then used a toothbrush and clean, white towel to rub and remove the residue.

I think the New Labels must be different from the past because they DID peal off easily.

Can you be more specific on the vendor with the sun visor decals? Phone number, address, catalog? I really hate the labels too and its the only thing I dislike about the car.

These are pretty good items...I bought a pair for my C6 as well as for my wifes HHR, which he custom made.
 
Worth the money and you can remove them if you change vehicles.

If you look on ebay, you can find several different labels to go right over the airbag label. Very cool.
