How to get this Black Goop Off?

Okay, so I pulled the cardboard trim around the clutch\brake\acc pedals this weekend..

And the foam strip that was glued to the top edge has deteriorated into a black, sticky mess. I've tried Goo Gone, Goof Off and other cleaners, but this stuff won't let go...

I have a few bolts that are covered in it soaking in Gasoline right now, sort of a last idea..

Anyone else find anything that works to get this stuff off?

P.S. - Changing the Clutch master. Never thought I was going to gt that damn pedal box out of the hole, but it did eventually come out, as all the threads say. Now I just have to do the flex line, Slave and bleed the system. Oh yeah, and figure out how to get the hood back on.. LOL!

I keep a can of Xylene around also.

Back in the day I used to use Trichlorotrifluoroethane on everything. It was like magic, spray it on your messy spot and everything evaporated into the heavens, magic.

Aceton!

When turning the clutchpedal 90 it's sometimes necessary to make a short slot into the opening. Just as wide as the pedal's (rubber is off) thickness.

Arlo - do you use Acetone for a metal prep before you weld? I have been using it for the past month or so. I use it after sanding with a flap disk and it seems to help out.

I just use a flap disk to keep the surfaces metallic clean before welding.
Only when trying to solder parts I use acetone or cellulose thinner to get the surfaces free of fat.
