Same with my Gates BC1-T. Some dork at the broadcast station had affixed
TWO identical 6" X 8" yellow "PCB Warning" notices to the front door of the
transmitter (can't figure out why they thought one wouldn't have been
sufficient). I managed to peel off the decals, but they left two
rectangular impressions in the paint. I tried numerous solvents, and tried
rubbing the surface with car polish, but nothing will take them off.
Evidently, the glue in the decals combined chemically with the enamel. I
think the technical term for this is polymerisation.
