Side molding adhesive

Post by neoncrazy101 » Sat May 03, 2008 9:09 pm

so last year when i first bought my 97 i took off the side molding from the doors. now then, it left a lot of adhesive and i've tried EVERYTHING to get it off. i've used a ton of elbow grease, plus a bunch of paper towels and such.

List of what i have used.

Goo Off
Goof Off
Laquer Thinner
3M adhesive removal (what we use at my dealership)
Opps.

Weird, on both Neons I owned it came off just by rolling it up into a ball with you finger (much like taking sticky tac off walls).

Put a towel over a small screwdriver then pry it up. Make sure the screwdriver does not go through the towel or you will chip/scratch your paint.

I did mine yesterday, and all I did was grab it and pull it off.

With regard to the 3M adhesive, I just used my thumb and slowly rolled all of it off. After I just washed the area and it looks great. Thumb kinda hurts, but there was a lot of adhesive lol.
