new use for brake fluid-visor airbag warning label

Wanted to get my ugly airbag warning stickers off of my visors. My car is a 2002 florida car, gray interior. Started off using some of my wifes nail polish remover, and turned the visor into a red/yellow mess. At this point, I really thought I had ruined the visor. So, i figured, what the hell, lets try some DOT 3 brake fluid I had laying around(old r/c lexan body trick). It took it off perfectly. Cleaned up the visor with some simple green, and applied vynlex liberally twice. Visors look like brand new except no more airbag warning sticker!

Thought i'd share for those that tried with nail polish remover and failed

It worked for me, but thats not to say it will work for all. make sure to use dot 3, not dot 4. I would have never tried if I hadn't already failed with nail polish remover.
