I tend to find that if you can wedge the item carefully between the buttocks of a slightly moist dwarf (male or female) and then sprinkle the item with a mixture of 73% glitter, 27% iron filings before having said dwarf spin around at roughly 33rpm (I find an old record player can assist at this point) and continuing to apply the glitter/filings mixture they should peel straight off?

Failing that, carefully ease them off with a craft knife and then pop a little WD40 on and carefully rub with cotton wool?

As I suspected. I have tried that before but at 45rpm. Hell of a mess I can tell you.

I've had success with Zippo lighter fluid in the past. Just seems to melt the glue right off.

I can't really help with sticker removal, as I would just peel them with the finger nail and then use Goo Gone to clear away the sticky mess left.

On a side note, it looks that someone tried to Funskool this Panther to look like this one: Funskool MRF Racing Jeep. If anything the Panther isn't complete even if restickered the correct way, as the gun isn't there and it looks like the gas cans are gone. If that is the case, I see that it's your choice in the matter of what you will with it. It's already on the path to being a custom ;-). I would resticker it how you want to, but thats me.

I like the spare wheel arrangement my self, you could always turn it into a Stinger or Panther varient of some kind.

That's exactly how I do it too. Takes the sticker gunk off, doesn't harm the plastic, and evaporates right off nice and quickly.
Squad Leader's stickers are excellent quality; I restored my SAS Wolverine using them and it looks superb.

Goo Gone works good, for replacement sticker I have heard a guy from Mexico named Ruben does very nice replacement labels. Not sure if he has the AF stuff but you can check some searches for more info on him.
