I have tons of things I need anwsers for right now giving the waggy a touch up and need to know how to get the wood decal off the best way possible without the sander. Its a Nebraska Jeep so it came with a few rust spots grrr but still love it and im hooked on fixing it. Any help would be cool thanks all

Ya the Jeep came from fremont got it from a redneck for 600 bucky runs great for a 89 but needs some tlc on the body. Going to paint it a dark gun metal color should look as mean as it sounds. So shobox what's in ur garage?

Sounds like I am not the only Wagoneer fan in Nebraska. Just bought my 88 from a guy here in the Omaha area. I live in Papillion and plan on outfitting mine for a hunting/off road toy. Glad to try and help and/or learn more about these wagons. Having fun working on mine so far.

I striped the woodgrain off mine with a stripe removal tool from snap on ( worth make the same tool) and all the paint was unharmed ,
It took about 8 or 10 hours .
I left it that way until I sanded the whole jeep for new paint
