Removing LE Checker plate - Need help removing killer adhesive

Has anyone every removed the checker plate bits from the running boards or rear ladder of a LE 97 SW? The stuff is bonded on with some sort of structural adhesive. It doesnt seem to be responding to the 3M adhesive remover.

Ideas anyone?

Try a heat gun and a hard plastic scraper. I have found that with enough heat you can remove about anything....

I agree Jim, heat should loosen it. The remaining adhesive will come off easily with Tarminator - a product made by Stoner

ref: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ghlight=stoner

Been using their products for 8 years. Safely remove adhesives, mastic, tar, grease, overspray etc . .. without hurting cured painted surfaces. Get some of the stuff and keep it around the shop. You'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Thanks guys, I was worried that heat would be my only option - now I have to go buy a heat source...

And I got the running boards explicitly for the purpose of using the plate - go find your own LE checker plate running boards!
