Gonna redo the new 40. The instructions say "solvent", but what solvent? Any recs appreciated.
I went to an automotive paint supply store and got a weatherstrip adhesive remover made by 3M. It works, but required a lot of elbow grease. I think the level of work depends on the hardness/age of the adhesive.
Ditto, and also depends on whether they used yellow or black weatherstrip adhesive. Yellow much more difficult to remove. IIRC
Are you trying to preserve paint? I was not concerned about that and zipped it off with a tufted wire wheel and an angle grinder.
Definitely trying to preserve paint!!!
Well then you need the 3M stuff, as it does not dissolve paint or rubber.
Anybody tried one of these?
X2 on the 3M weatherstrip adhesive remover. It helps to let it soak in and soften up the real old hard stuff and to scrape exess off. This is an excellent all-around cleaner, solvent. Also removes the gaudy decals the PO put on.....
I use them on gaskets, but they will damage the paint.
Thanks all for the info. Will go with the 3M adhesive remover.
So buy two cans instead of one. The stuff was really designed to remove "fresh" adhesive, but as Pete says, let it soak.
How 'bout a quart?
The little boy pissing on the jeep logo is kinda cute though.
I used acetone and lacquer thinner. The acetone worked best for me and didn't remove the original white paint.
It goes a long way and comes in I think they're quart cans, the flat cans like acetone comes in.
