Remove silk-screened lettering?

Hi,

I just got a new work van, a '00 Chevy Astro. I bought it from a company that had their name silk-screened on the doors. There's not a lot of lettering, but I'd like to remove it w/o damaging the clearcoat.

Is there a safe way to do this, or should I take it to a body shop?

Thanks in advance.

I use the 3Mô Scotch Brite molding adhesive remover disc, P/N 07501. It is a rubber disc, chucks up in a drill and it basically "erases" without damaging clearcoat or paint.
Recommended by GM.
You should be able to get one from either an Auto Body PAint and Supply store, or possibally from a tool truck (eg snap on, matco or mac)

Would It Work for Masking Ridges

My wife scraped the bottom corner of her bumper on a rock wall. I sanded, filled, glazed, primed, painted and clear coated it. It came out really well but I have some ridging where the masking tape was. I have been using a "Clay Bar" to remove the excess but it is hand labour intensive and slow. I was wondering if the rubber disk you mention would work for this or if you know of a better way to remove the clear coat ridges? My feathering isn't my strong suit.
