This I great advise! If you don't have scotchbrite go with some mild steel wool. I use to work as VP of design at the worlds largest mass market bike company... In all my travels to China I don't think I ever saw a painted or permeant decal, peel or strip those puppies off or they will foul your paint and make you hate life
