The black ink from the label edges did bleed onto the visor. I applied a little more Goof Off, and with some rubbing, more of the ink came off. However, more solvent was getting absorbed than the amount of ink removed. I then tried Fantastic (I'm thinking laundry stains here, not BMW visor), even Goo Gone, which smells like lemon.
I also have 3M adhesive remover, but for ink, I may even try hairspray (because of the alcohol content). In organic chemistry, we learned that like dissolves like, and I believe that I'm dealing mostly with ink, not adhesive.
So ksfrogman, how does it look?
