Scoop Refurb
« on: April 15, 2019, 07:04:20 PM »

Picked up an older GN Scoop from gumtree as mentioned on the eBay/bargains thread and gave it a refurb yesterday. Used the old labels for this one.

You've got me hungering for a scoop. Was my first bat.

How did you keep the stickers so intact?

They came off pretty easily so could use them again.

What glue do you use to restick them?

Used a thin layer of pva spread all over with my finger and re-applied them.

Great idea, did you just use a small amount of heat to peel them off? I always find that I stretch the stickers when I remove them, this may be my lack of patience though....

These peeled off very easily without any heat. I usually use the missus hair dryer to heat them up and hope they dont stretch.
