Found this thread so useful...
Used the hair dryer to remover the back "swishes" from my Gray Nicolls Quantum and then sanded of the horrible sticker residue and it looks great :D ill whack up some pictures tomorrow. Will get round to oiling the back but the sticker mark isn't to obvious after sanding so might not bother  8)

So if i use mineral spirit or turpentine it is no good for the willow. This is in order to remove the glue residue.

I have used white spirit before to remove glue from stickers and it has never damaged the willow or the glue in the splice.

I've used it on the edges to get fibre scuff off. As little as possible but it does help. Used it in combination with wire wool occasionally, though this can mark any existing cracks so may require another go with sandpaper.

Julian Millichamp suggested to me that after taking the scuff sheet off, leave the bat overnight and the sticky glue dries and is then really easy to sand off. I haven't tried it yet but will be giving it a go next time.

I like to use the oil method to get rid of the sticky residue however instead of using the Stanley knife a pair of bluntish scissors open to scrape the glue of always does the trick however I generally just use 120 sandpaper especially on high end bats

I use DIY sticky stuff remover to remove sticker and scuff sheet glue residue applied to a linen rag
it leaves the bat nice and clean with minimal effort and does not clog the willow or damage the splice glue.

1 of the best topics I've read on here, great advice from everyone.

I need some GM Flare stickers, can someone point me in the right direction to find some?  The ones I see on Ebay look terrible (fake) I may be incorrect?

It's extremely difficult to find real or decent quality fake Gm stickers as I there embossed design and gm are very careful with who is able to print them

Heat Gun but you need to be careful.

If you do it right, the glue bond between the wood and the glue is weaker then the bond between the decal and the glue, so should peel off nicely.

White spirit THEN sand to get rid of the glue residue works an absolute treat!

I've read up numerous topics on this and had a go on Tuesday on a GM bat that needs some love (Pictures to follow in a seperate thread) however...

The bat is quite old and I still managed to lift quite a bit of willow up, i've cut the loose strands off with a knife but there's some half deep gouges in there, any advice as what to do with these? I was going to give the whole face a good sand anyway, oil and add a scuff but before I do that should I sand down to compltely flatten out the grooves of the lifted wood or not?

If you can collect a fair amount of English willow sanding dust mix it with a little bit of wood/ova glue and place in these gaps leaving over night to dry in the right position  then resand
