October 3, 2007Alright I took my pinstriping off a little bit ago but the is a horrible residue from where it was. It is almost like it is still on there that is how well you can see the adhesive. I am just wondering if there is a good way to remove this with ot damaging my paint?

October 3, 2007Rubbing alcohol, road tar and oil remover (need to wash off soon after using), eraser wheel on a buffer, there are several products out there you can use to get the residue off, just depends on how much there is and how much money and time you are willing to spend. The rubbing alcohol is the cheapest way, but also the slowest, but if you only have small sections then it is a good method, tar remover may be costly (Ive never had to pay for it, I just use 3m stuff at work) works faster than rubbing alcohol, but is time consuming if you have a lot of area to cover and you have to wash it off soon after using to keep it from esting into the paint, waxing afterwards wouldnt hurt either, the eraser wheel is the fastest method if you have a drill or buffer that will accept the attatchment, but the attatchment may be costly ($15-20 depending on size and where you get it) but it will get you finished the fastest and you will have it for the next time around, but if you move too slow then you can burn the paint so you need to keep moving, again waxing afterwards wouldnt hurt.
October 3, 2007For adhesive residue I always use WD-40 to soften it up so that it wipes right off. It won't hurt the paint at all and works fairly quick.
October 3, 2007Goo-Gone or like rubbing alcohol, I'm not sure what the latter will do to paint though, might want to try in a not so noticeable place first
October 3, 2007i use goo-gone on everything and it work great
October 3, 2007I like to use Stoner Tarminator, then follow up with a clay bar, then follow that up with some polish, and then finally a top coat of some kind such as wax/sealant.
October 4, 2007I took the molding off my truck this week and I used an old gift card with WD-40 to scrape all the goop off, rinsed all of it off, and then used 3M rubbing compound.
