Adhesive Removal

Looking for a recommendation on an adhesive remover. The previous owner put duct tape along parts of the top rear tub rail. What's the best I can use that won't damage the paint underneath? Although, I might have to paint anyway after I find what he was hiding with the tape.

Thanks,

Paul

You can use mineral spirits and lightly rub the adhesive off. I've used it for removing the "range rover" letters on the front and back of my RRC. After getting the adhesive off, wash the area then use a rubbing compound.

You can pick up mineral spirits at any hardware store, auto store, or home improvement.

The 3M stuff is really good, also some stuff called Goo Gone works very well too.

I've used acetone to remove adhesive from various things in the past.

Whoooo-who! Acetone and paint don't mix! I take it you didn't use this on your D110 Al!

Anyway, I'm not sure I understand the location of the "top tub rear rail," but if this is a painted surface then try isopropyl alcohol (nail polish remover). That should do the trick and won't effect your paint.

Lightbulb Tarminator - By Stoner

If you guys have not used this stuff . . . you should.

I could not do without it. They have allot of great products including

More Shine Less Time - non soap based tire shine that works without making it look like a "pimp ride"
Invisible Glass.

Been using their products for 8 years.
