Removing all of the glue isn't necessary. Once you've pulled the vinyl, go over the surface lightly with 40 grit on a sander. This will take off any glue that would possibly let loose. Make sure to touch up any sand scratches through the paint. Our technique for installation is pretty similar to Bob's, except we use tarps on both sides of the roof leaving a 3" strip exposed down the center, with center marks front and rear. The key to installing vinyl tops is knowing how to work with the cement, and knowing when the cement is ready once sprayed.
