Romoval of old sound deadener could use some advice

I am gutting a 65 Thunderbird to clean up the passenger compartment.
It seems it was a home for a few rodents, and has a bad mildew smell. I am likely going to use a mild bleach to clean and disenfect the pasenger cab.
I am also trying to remove the old factory sound deadener out of the cabin as well, having problems leaving tons of sticky tar like substance.
I was wondering if ther was an easier way or a few tips on removal of this crud.
Thanks for taking a look.

Here's a thread with some ideas for you. Mikey's right, if it's hard enough, the needle scaler works great. CLICK HERE Good luck.

Steam!

Go to your local hardware store. Pick up a wallpaper steamer. Steam will loosen it up in a safe way.

the best thing i have found is freezing it with dry ice, then use a flat head scew driver and hammer/mallet. It leaves it super clean and you don;t have to worry about harmful chemicals and solvents.

The dry ice is a great idea. If solid enough, the air powered needle scaler will make quick work of it, and is much simpler.

Dry Icing it sounds like it could take damn near forever, is it actually pretty quick?

Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide, and its temperature is -109 degrees F, way colder than regular ice. It also returns to gas form and not liquid form when it "melts". It would work quick and not leave anything behind.

no luck on the dry ice, 2 big blocks later and the stuff was still a pain in the *** to remove.
Lots of cursing and 3M adhesive remover seems to work well. However the Adhesive remove somewhat just kind of melted it so its pretty nasty goo now... Im gonna need some more shop towels...lol

Which reminds me, the fumes are bad for you.
