Hey Detailing guys

I thought I'd get your opinion on this one. I'm removing the old vinyl C strip on the coronet because of a three inch section that tore loose and is gone. Well I'm replacing it with a new sticker, but after I get the old one off. I will need to clean it properly. I';m thinking good old elbow grease with water and soap should work, but I figured I would get some opinions from you guys. Do you gus suggest anything different or something that might work easier to cleaqn it up.

Thanks

Mike

The orange Goo B gone shit works really well and it's safe. I used it on my paint where I debadged the trunk and we used it on Tim's paint. It worked good and there was no issue and new adhesive went right back on the same spot with no issue.

Yeah, even Walmart. I've never used it on vinyl but it says it's safe for anything.

Mikey, 3M makes a product called wax and adhesive remover. You can get it at most parts stores or at Body Shop Supply. From my personal experience, its pretty good stuff. Here's a link to 3M's website: http://www.3m.com/product/information/Adhesive-Wax-Remover.html

You can get it in aerosol form, or liquid form in a squeezeable metal container. Put a little on a rag and the adhesive is gone.
