Hello, I am done with stripping the rear portion of the tub, and moving onto the front.

I have come across this indestructible goo.
I assume it's sound dampening, and my main concern is getting rid of it, so if anyone has any tips/advice It's all welcome.

This was 30 min or so with hammer and good scraper. Scraper was cleaned off and sharpened several times. Dry ice would have been used if I was removing more than a small spot. Mineral spirits and a rag to clean the little pieces and residue.

If it's the same stuff that was in my pickup, it definitely comes out quicker when cold. I didn't have dry ice so I used frozen gel packs. I started out using a hammer and wide chisel and it worked pretty good. I switched to a wide curved chisel that I dulled down on my air chisel. Took it off in large sheets. Be careful with the angle of the tool so you don't punch through the floor.

I was surprised at how heavy this stuff is. The trash can weighed a ton.

I like the dry ice idea. I used the heat gun/scraper/oscillating scraper (too loud)/elbow grease method. Took a while, but then again, so has the whole damn project.
