How to safely remove adhesive form paint

How do I get the glue from old fender flares off w/out damaging the paint. I actually think the glue is clear silicone.
BWT I used to be like a "old hand" or "Jedi" or some kind of big-shot on ORC but my weekend warrior gig had me away from my computer for a while and I forgot my pword. Soooooo, I have to [humbly] come crawling back; and like a newbie beg for tablescraps of golden automotive knowledge.

Re: How to safely remove adhesive form paint

I put Goof Off in a spray bottle to get all the adhesive from the tape off from my side moulding. Spray it on, let it sit for like 30 seconds and then just wipe the stuff off with a rag. Works great, only thing I have found so far that doesn't hurt paint and still removes it.

I can't help you with the glue.

Re: How to safely remove adhesive form paint

Anything that does require gobs of elbow work will require you to re-wax where you took off the adhesive.

depending on how resilient the adhesive is decides which I use and I go in this order:
1. carburetor cleaner
2. 3M adhesive & wax remover
3. lacquer thinner

99% of the time the 3M stuff will get it off. It's expensive though which is why I usually skip it and go to thinner. Thinner evaporates really quick though.

Oh yeah, have The_Sandman_454 reset the password to your old username.
