supposedly if you let the stuff sit it will take it off, but i dont have the patience for that so i bought an eraser wheel.

If you dont have the gear for the wheel... I recommend either the 3M or Goo Gone as has already been mentioned.

The Key is to get it warm. Use a hair dryer and WARM up (NOT heat up) the sticky glue. With this cool weather it will help immensely. Next spray on the Adhesive remover and let it sit for a while.... shoot it again.... work it in with your thumb being careful that any sand or grit isnt getting "Worked into your paint" during the process. Wipe with a clean towel... it may not get it all ot once, and you may have to repeat these steps a couple times.

Just be VERY careful that when wiping the glue, you arent gouging grit and grime into the paint scratching it. "Wipe Away from the paint" if you know what I mean.

Good Luck Bro!

go to a local body shop and see if they will sell you the wheel. You won't have to wait that way and it really is the best way to remove the glue. I got mine that way and made a great new contact.

I've used the 3M Adhesive Remover, Goo-Gone, AND WD-40. They all work to varying degrees. In warmer climes like Texas you don't need to warm the stuff up, it just makes it a sticky mess that spreads around. But now that it's cooler, it may need a little warming to get it pliable and workable. Let the stuff sit and soften the glue up.

The biggest thing is patience. Rush it, and you'll either make the job bigger or do damage to your paint.

Yea Dane, Thanks for clearing that up... Thats exactly the two points I was making... Not HOT, but warmer than the current "Cold weather" to make it "Workable"....

The Eraser wheel works well too... But Im glad I didnt use it on mine because I live on a dirt road and when I removed my badges and inspected the sticky glue, I noticed ALLOT of gritty debri that would have scratched the PISS out of my paint had I eraser wheeled it.

If your ride is fairly new, then you should be ok!

Ether works too, also called starting fluid. We use it at work to remove old decals from machinery that has been traded in.
