Prepsol, wax and grease remover.....heard oven cleaner works a treat too, tried it once on pin stripes, worked well.

ended up using a hair dryer and a plain old soft rubber eraser, got most of it off just faint lines from the build up of dirt that sat in the glue, when i give the doors a proper polish that should come off coz its very low profile when compared to the finish..


cheers anyway peoples! i just got impatient

prepsol is definatly your friend when getting the glue off... and if you cant get the faint stains away with prepsol just give the car a few waxez usualy elimiates the faint glue lines...

I bought my last tin from Autobarn.

I've done heaps of these and have tried prepsol, bug & tar remover, eucalyptus oil and a few other things, but have definitely found the easiest way for me is with a hair dryer and a plastic spatula. Then just use a bit of prepsol etc at the end to clean up the little bits.
