Goo Begone, Brake fluid, but I can't say if either one plays nice with Aluminum...

Lighter fluid.

Hi, old fashioned lighter fluid has worked for me. I haven't tryed any of these new products yet. WD-40 is good for many uses, but the odor prevents me for useing it in some places. And brake fluid eats paint.

Forget WD40 and lighter fluid to cut through the old 'goo' left from those original tape won't dissolve that old adhesive...

I had to resort to that nasty 'goo' type Paint Remove that you have to get from a hardware store...this stuff does nasty things to you skin if you get it on ya'...wear gloves and use some safety glasses for protection!

You have to goop it on with an old paint brush, brushing in one direction only...let it set for a while, then scrape off the 'spooge' with the plastic scrapers...I then followed up with some acetone for the clean up...forget any old 'clear coat' here, it was long gone on our 78 Ambassador!
