Removing the Steeda Decals

Nick
I'm getting my Mustang ready for a paint job. I've used a heat gun to remove the Steeda decals. There is a lot of goop left from the adhesive. What can I use to get the goop off?

WD-40 works wonders. Goo Gone is good stuff too.

I bought some Goo Gone Gel from Wal-Mart that is awsome... it's pretty thick so you don't have to worry about it running onto the paint where there are no decals... just spray it on, wipe off the excess stuff not on the decals... let it sit for about 10 minutes, and your decals should come right off. It's pretty cool stuff!

I used Goo Gone to get the dealer sticker off the back of my car.

Hey Coach, just remember whatever you use you need to clean and wax your car afterwards. All of these products can possibly strip the wax off of your car.

The guys at "Best in Show" are going to paint it. I'll clean it up some, but I figure they will prep the surface before they paint it. Are you going to go to the Sanderson's Car Show and do some business?

No, not unless someone asks me to come out for them. Still waiting on my new water tank and water purifier to come in. Should be here by Friday, then I have that class on Sunday that I have to get ready for.
