Removing old insulation

Anybody got any suggestions on removing old insulation from inside of my 39? The exterior of the insulation comes off pretty easy, but leaves behind a sticky mess.

Thanks

That's probably asphalt of some kind, and it won't come off easily. You are taking it out for what reason? It's been there for 74 years. I assume you want to put Dynamat or something like it up there. Just add whatever you're adding right over the top. I'd clean it up with some mineral spirits first.

Yea--I tried that as well as Acetone & Lacquer Thinner. MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) cut it but I really donít want to work with the stuff overhead inside the car.

I, also, thought that I would just leave it and put the Dynamat over it but wasnít sure. I donít need any problems once I get the upholstery done. I suppose that since itís been up there for 74 years, (and it really is stuck!) Iíll just go over top.
Thanks

As a professional upholsterer I can tell you that covering it up will be just fine. Just leave yourself a good solid surface to apply the Dynamat to. If you're going to use the original bows for the headliner you don't want the roof to be too thick or it can get in the way of the bows and headliner.
