Removing adhesive

Whats the best thing to use to remove the adhesive that's left over after you peel the pinstripe off?

3M makes a fine trim adhesive removal solvent. Find it at any auto paint supply shop. Try mineral spirits and see if that works.

Adhesive cleaners and wax and grease remover work fine. 3M also makes a stripe and woodgrain remover that works well.

careful if you use mineral spirits, you could take some of the clear off if the paint isn't that old.

mineral spirits wont begin to harm the clearcoat. you can wipe down basecoat with it a half hour after spraying without harm. mineral spirits is about the most mild solvent there is. i usually use it to wipe down my delicate airbrush work before clearing, anything else would harm it.

I Used the 3M pinstripe and Woodgrain remover to take off a one inch wide pinstripe that was on the bumper cover I purchased for the project. The bumper cover probably had that stripe on it for 10 years but I sprayed on the 3M waited a bit and peeled off the pinstripe then I sprayed more on and wipped off the glue. Through it all the paint was left untouched. It works great.
