I hate to beat the horse but....Goo Gone comes in different strengths and in larger bottles which is a much cheaper way to go. Found this out in the paint dept. at Wal Mart down south last winter when stripping the old gasket adheasive off the windows. As I recall, there was one with an "industrial" strength label.

Good Luck with your project.

Had a long scratch down the side of my Sovereign when I bought it. Here is my solution and I actually think it adds to the look of the trailer while covering the scratch. It wasn't cheap and it wasn't easy; however, most of my discomfort was mental, no broken or bruised body parts.

I will check on the GOO and see if there is anything stronger.

Juel,
The stripe looks great and may be the direction we have to go.

juel,

Your Sovereign looks fresh, shiny and ready to go. Good choice and job on the stripe, it looks great.

Well, here is an update on the tape removal. I have tried virtually everything including WD-40 (no effect) and Goo B-Gone (useless). BUT we finally found a product that took the tape off in minutes, Airplane Stripper (Thanks, 94tri). We stripped one half of the trailer and remember there were SEVERAL layers in about 1 hour!!! All that work and the answer was at Wal-Mart, $8.00 per can, 2 cans will do the entire trailer. Now I'm really getting excited about polishing!

Thanks,
63silver

So does that mean that you will be showing off a nice shiny trailer at the Dogwood rally in April?

BigAl,
I wouldn't go so far as to say shiny....maybe in the process. I think a great event/seminar at the rally would be for everyone there to take a 3 square foot section of my trailer and polish it. This would be a great learning experience, what do you think? I think diggerbear has a cyclone. We have our opening event. Now let's see how many cancel.
