    Read through the product list. You may never get it completely perfect though if you have a base coat/clear coat paint job.

    I removed a vinal Ad sign on my side of my inclosed trailer it left ghosting, I tried polishing it helped a little, you can still see it up close but it wasn't as bad as it was. Someone told me glazing works the best on removing ghosting, I havn't tried it?

    What tends to happen is even though the clearcoat has UV protection in it, the base coat (color coat) will still fade somewhat over time. Under the decals, it doesn't. Unless you are willing to completely remove the clearcoat, wet sand the base coat and then reshoot the clear, you are stuck.

    Over a few years, as the formerly covered areas begin to fade slightly as well, the difference won't be as noticable.
