Anything to get the gum off

I just shaved the stickers off my Zuki body with a razor blade, but alot of gummy glue remains. That is a rough job to sand off by hand. Anyone have any suggestions aside from buying a sander? Any chemical solutions that will do the job without eating through the sheet metal?

You can use this stuff called goo-gone. Can buy it at the drug store.

I used that and it softened the paint enough that I could write my name in it! After the Goo-Gone evaporated the paint went back to normal. It'll work and if you are repainting your ride then it'll be OK. If you're keeping the stock paint justbe careful and start in an area that's a little less conspicuous.

When heidi got hers there where stickers everywhere. I peeled them off with a flat razor then rubbed it down with paint thinner. Rinsed it off quickly and no problems.

Re: Anything to get the gum off

Excellent, thanks. No I'm not using the stock paint, for now I am just spending a few bucks on some spray paint and putting on zebra stripes. But as long as I had it up on blocks and not running, I thought I would peel back those stickers while I wait on parts.

Re: Anything to get the gum off

back when i was still doing body work, we used laquer thinner on them. seemed to work well, some we would have to hold a rag on to soften them up some cause the glue was so old n hard.

Re: Anything to get the gum off

Auto body supply shops have a non chemical decal/stripe remover. It is used with a drill and is similar to a gummy type of eraser material. Costs about $20 and makes short order of those decals. I used it and it worked great. I believe that 3M makes it.....

Re: Anything to get the gum off

I saw those drill/wheel things in a mag once. Evertime I ask about them the people behind the counter look at me like I have meatloaf for brains...

Re: Anything to get the gum off

Best stuff ever if called GOOF OFF. It removes that sticker goo great. I have used it on metal and even on the plastic on my motorcycle. If you leave it on a rag laying on the paint/plastic it will harm it. However if you apply it to the rag and then to what you want to remove it works great. I use this for everything. It will even take paint off a layer at time if you want.

Don't force it, just get a bigger hammer.
