Anyone know a product that will remove the goo that remains after the stick-on molding strip is removed. The big chunks come off faily easy, but a thin film of stickiness remains. i've tried wd-40, alcohol and 409 with little success.
Adhesive and Wax Remover quickly removes wax, grease, oil and adhesive residue. It will not harm most cured automotive paints and is also suitable for vinyl and glass surfaces.
I tried to use it yesterday. It didn't entirely do the job. I may have to get some Goo Gone. I've got adhesive from door edge protectors that's stuck on my door edges and some that spread itself on the side of the car. Those door edge protectors don't stay on the VW like they do on my truck.
It also had no effect on some hot melt glue that was stuck from my early grille blocking attempts.
I'm thinking a hair dryer and a plastic putty knife might work, or maybe a drill-mounted buffer, if I can't find any Goo Gone.
Goo Gone didn't work for me either on removing the molding adhesive. i just used the side of my thumb and my fingernail. That got most of it. the rest will be removed with a sander when the car is painted.
