When I had a Porsche there was a method on the forums where you put a solvent on the label then wrapped a plastic bag like a Walmart bag around the visor, sealed it, and left it overnight. I tried it and it worked great. My Mustang has a cloth feel to the covering so I don't know if it can be done.

I went back and found the thread on 6speedonline. The method was to soak a paper towel in denatured alcohol then put that on the sticker then put the plastic bag over the whole thing. I only waited 20 minutes and the sticker peeled right off. There was a shadow from where the sticker was. One guy said Aerospace 303 protectant would clean that up.
The thread "only" had 90 posts lol.

Someone was making stickers that went over them, and were colored to match the interior.

First time I have heard about the alcohol method. I might give that a try. A lot of the other removal methods sounded iffy to me.

If you do some on the Porsche forum said to use 91% Isopropyl and not denatured alcohol because the latter has some bad things in it. Post if you do it.

I used the sticker zombie cover up and found a mustang sticker on Amazon. Not perfect but I can remove both when I go to sell it.

I used to remove them using goo gone and a heat gun. Then tried the overlays .......... Now, I just leave them. If you are looking at them while driving, there is an issue.

As an aside, a friend masked them off. Used a 2" roller and black semi gloss interior paint. Doesn't look half bad. And yes, he covered the interior with a drop cloth. :)

I removed mine with a hair drier, but removing the residue was a royal PITA. Tried everything, from alcohol to tons of Goo Gone. It didn't end up perfectly, but gave up after I wasn't making any more progress. Much better than before, so didn't regret doing it. If you don't look at where they were, and with the right light, you can't see anything, so close enough :).

Was channel surfing one night when I saw Phil Swift advertising
the 'Flex Seal' line of products.
He had a roll of 'Flex Tape' that looked like it would cover the
warning label on my visor, so I ordered the stuff for the tape.
The tape is the actual size; width wise and I cut the tape
length wise to fit.
Looked and did great!!

However, if you decide that you want to remove the tape,
it REALLY sticks!!!
I was considering trading for a Grabber Blue GT350, so I went
to remove the tape.
I got it off but what a pain.....................:headbang:
