Removing old decals

I'm trying to repaint my old truck, it is 22 years old and I've been piecing it together, the doors have factory decals on them, large decals that have been baked and frozen for 22 years.They are STUCK! all a heat gun does is smear them and a finishing sander just gums up and I eat through the old paint and into the metal well before the decal gives way, any tricks?
