Angry Glue Residue

How to remove heavy glue residue from front of coach? We have removed most of the diamond shield and want to remove the glue without damaging the paint finish.

There are some commercial products (Goo Gone is one), but I found plain old WD-40 worked very well.

Many petroleum-based products will act as "mild" solvents. Skin-so-Soft lotion will remove some sticky substances, and it smells good too. However, for your project, a stronger and less costly alternative would be kerosene or mineral spirts. PLUS elbow grease, of course!

See this thread, sounds like he was very successful in removing the glue. Fortunately it was just posted in the last few days or I would never have remembered reading it.

WD 40, Goof Off, and peanut butter. Any one should work.
