Sticker removal

looking for some guidance by the wise ones - how do I remove a sticker from my lexan wind deflector without scratching the deflector "glass" (actually plastic)? It is a Leguna Seca sticker, oval shape.
BTW, the wind deflector is for sale, as are the two black mesh roll bar screens. All in excellent condition. $275 for the set, or $150 for the deflector and $150 for the mesh inserts.

We have used three parts water, two teaspoons of rubbing alcohol, one part dish washing soap. Spray on decal let sit for ten mins. Start by lifting at corners working toward the middle. You can use a old credit card to start this.

Have also used a hair dryer set on low setting held about six inches away from the surface.

Have also used plain old gasoline or nail polish remover.

Lighter fluid works well, or straight Naptha. Will not harm plastic

The heat/hair dryer method is always my first choice. Denatured rubbing alcohol is the next choice, but I'd be very careful with any solvent on Lexan or other clear plastic.
