Scrub the old spot with MEK solvent on scotchbrite pads or a rag, try not to let it run because it may discolor, and do it outside or else use a hardware store respirator like a 3M with the appropriate filter type for solvents.

edit: also google 'mek rib'

Use mek thinners and apply with a soft cloth - Scotch brite will sand the tube.

Dremel with a flapper wheel.

You're going to have to sand the surface before you glue the new logos anyways...

I ordered a pair of these from Dave Cowel after reading this post, they arrived yesterday and look spot on £25 well spent
I'd certainty recommend them to anyone who's decals are looking a bit tatty
Thanks very much Dave

decals

Cheers for the decals Dave,they look fantastic.I did have a few questions to anyone who can help, Should I let some air out of sponsons before I glue them on ,or should sponsons be fully inflated ? how many coats of glue would be good before adhesion ? and do I apply another coat after a successful knuckle test, Don't want to bugger this up. Cheers

Yes let some air out so the tube is soft but not to soft then inflate the next day..... One primer coat on both the decal and tube and leave for around 30min then another coat on both surfaces and bond together after touch dry... BUT most important is to make sure the back of the decals are sanded and the area on the tube.. You dont want any shiny bits left as it wont stick.. Also try to roll it with a hand roller .. Remove any old glue as it will go brown in the sun..
