    Re: Goof Off vs 3M Adhesive Remover vs Brake Cleaner for removing sticky stuff

    Guys,
    What can I use to remove the adhesive left on the trunk of my car? I bought an adhesive wheel but I don't feel comfortable using it. Can I use that Goo Gone extra strength product on the paint? Thanks

    Goo B Gone - soak a clean cloth and press it on to the residue and let it soak/adsorb for a few moments. Try a pastic razor blade if the surrounding surface is clean. Otherwise, try using some fishing line back-n-forth and so on. I bit the bullet and rubbed at it with a MF cloth soaked in Goo B Gone and then polished out the marring I created.

    I use 3M adhesive remover when I debadge vehicles. It melts the glue in seconds. Very happy with this product even if it is expensive (20$ for a can here in Canada). I have tried Goo Gone in the past and found it very ineffective. I still have a full bottle I never use. Goof off is acetone I think... might be wrong... if so, be very careful around plastic parts.

    I have the quart can of 3m remover and have used it to remove adhesive the goo gone and acetone would not remove. Still was a lot of work and plastic blades that day. I think I will skip the next large adhesive removal job directed my way.

    The wheel is the way to go for big jobs. It's just a big eraser. Even if you get a little marring, it's still faster to use it and then a quick polish.
