"glue" removal

I've yet to find anything that will effectively remove the crap left behind by vinyl door edge guard mouldings.
I dunno what that chewing gum crap is, but I have yet to find a solvent that will cut it.

Going out on a limb here get you some "Goof Off" to remove the guck. Test it on a inconspicuous area of painted surface to make sure it won't eat the paint. My old model T had an enamel paint and I found if I swiped the surface quickly and very lightly the gunk would come right off. if I rubbed hard the paint would then start to show abrasion..

That stuff works on a lot of things for removing sticker glue to body adhesive..

If it's been painted in the last 30 years or so it's likely urethane maybe even basecoat clear coat. If that's the case lacquer thinner can be used to remove that goop without damaging the paint. Do a little test where you can't see it just in case.

A eraser wheel in a drill at slow speeds takes it off easily

I was thinking the same thing! I'm also wondering how one of those will work on removing RTV type sealant around the windows on a camping trailer...

Yep, I was thinking "glue" but the foam tape left from those mouldings, jc is right on the money the eraser wheel is the way to go.

It's not like anything I've run across. Eraser won't work,(just gums up) Laquer thinner, goof off, w&g remover,(won't touch it) grinder,(gums up like eraser, and wire brush) heat gun, (makes it even more gooy and harder to remove) Wire brush... all won't do it. It's not double sided tape, like a side molding, it's some sort of snot-like substance that's used inside cheapo plastic door edge guard. The paint on the vehicle is original '86 Ford paint. And I suspect the edge guard has been on it since '86 as well.
I managed to get it off (kinda) with torch, and just burning it off. (painting anyway) Once it's burnt to ash, it comes off easily.
