Before I retired and started my back yard shop I worked for several years at a large truck dealership in the body shop. We had to remove decals like that all the time on truck trade ins and lease returns. We would use a small butane torch like you get at home depot to soder pipes together. You can control your heat better with them then a heat gun. Although a heat gun will work just takes longer. When your doing a 24' x8' van body side you want it to go as fast as possible.Heat the decal get your finger nail under a edge and pull off as much as you can at a time. Before your done your fingers will be sore and finger prints almost gone. Good luck.
