I know people who have used an abrasive wheel on a grinder to remove the black adhesive residue. Be sure to wear a respirator. Myself, I removed the left over fur with a stiff nylon brush...and then installed Prodex insulation. What I can't see won't hurt me.

Are you going to be lifting the shell and pulling out the frame?

I used some citrus degreaser. Remember it gets covered back up so no need to go crazy clean. Since I was pulling my shell I pressure washed it after letting cleaner soak for a little while.
