It looks like it was never prepped before they were sprayed. I would say a good pressure washer should take them off. If they come off real easy a coin carwash with decent pressure may work but more like a high pressure washer you can rent for like doing driveways etc. that would be the quickest and easiest if it works.

Is it paint or vinyl??  Looks like paint and if so, repaint the whole car, there's no taking just the murals off.

Paint as in a liquid that is applied and then dries or vinyl as in basically a sticker with adhesive backing that has been stuck onto the car and may or may not have been painted over with clear.

Looks like paint though so either have the entire car repainted or use some touch up paint to fix the flaws.

the reason I said a presure washer is that you can see the paint edges flaking off in the pictures obviously it was sprayed over the paint job already on the car. who ever did it did not sand and prep the surface before hand - you can tell by the color underneath the peeling area is shiny as fuck - therefore in this case pressure washing it should peel it off. But as a general rule the other guys are right if done right murals are inside the paint and it would need to be repainted. But whoever did this to your ride half assed it and did a shitty job - would realy suck if you wanted to keep the art work but works out pretty good for you in this case. Good luck Lil Homie :cool:
