I pretty much just yanked them off and was left with a ton of adhesive. I have tried to get it off with a credit card and WD40 with no luck. I soaked the adhesive with WD40 every 10 minutes for an hour. Tried the CC again and no luck.

Anyone know how to get this shit off?

Patience and a women with finger nails. :D It sucks, but it will come off. Also a hot air gun or a hair dryer may help (that goes along with the women part :p) :bigthumbsup:

The safest way is adhesive remover designed for the use on painted surfaces. Whatever you do be careful in what you use on the plastic painted surfaces. Z- 8)

Its over 105 degrees in my garage, I guess I figured that would be hot enough.

What about gasoline? Would that work better than WD40?

I would just run out and get some specail remover, but I live out of town and don't want to go get a special product unless I absolutely have to.

I used this Goo Gone Gel. It comes in a little spray bottle. I still had to work at it with a finger nail for a bit...but it came off!! You MUST get as much of that dark gray colored foam stuff off first. Then just work on that adhesive. Make sure ya throw on a coat of wax when done. Good luck!! :bigthumbsup:

Here's what I did for the tank. Grab the wifey's hair dryer and some waxed dental floss. Warm the adhesive up carefully and carefully saw through the ****. Remove any excess with wd wonder or goof-off. Be sure not to use goof-off on your plastic. The M109R badges on the side covers come off relatively easy. Good Luck

brake cleaner will be the best thing to use.... just make sure you wash the area after you used it.....it dry itself but is still a strong stuff .......


I don't recommend it on plastic part........ even do i did it........ i did seem to melt it..... but may have taken some shine away......

most brake cleaners come with a warning to keep them away from painted surfaces
