Removed the rubbing strip - now in a 'sticky' situation

Hi All,

I'll cut to the chase - I'm looking for a magic wand to get rid of the stickiest crap I've ever come accross!

I removed the rubbing strip from my D1, and now I'm struggling to get rid of the double sided MEGA-sticky tape used to make sure it NEVER comes off!!

Does anyone have a magic method of removing it? The best method I have it to painfully remove as much as possible by rubbing my skin off, and then using acetone to remove the rest - it's taking hours! ...and the acetone isn't great for the paintwork!

HELP!!

I've been in a similar situation and found rubbing the skin off my thumbs to be the best method of removing the goo too.
Have you tried using a soft pencil eraser?

No, haven't tried a pencil eraser ...hmm, worth a go

I'm guessing the panel beaters have some magic goo they use - surely they don't spend hours picking at it?

I had the same issue with my RRC and the solution is a "caramel wheel". It is basically a big round soft eraser that fits in a drill. Cheap and it works. Most tool shops and auto paint places should have them.

Link to my thread about them. see post 12 (thanks Tony)

Great - sounds like the magic wand I was looking for, plus it sounds like I might be able to eat it afterwards by the name

I've only tried acetone, which I did reluctantly.... :S

A Caramel Wheel sounds like the the go ...can't beat something you can put into a power tool

By all means. Any excuse to wield a power tool. However, eucalyptus oil and a rag, or just bare fingers, is easy, cheap, and won't be likely to damage paintwork. Dissolves glue really easily. Mind you, I've never tried it on your application, so you might find it does absolutely nothing except smell good! Worth keeping in mind though for other things like rego stickers, price tags, etc.

citronelena oil will also work very well.
