Glue Residue

I recently acquired some extra plastic for my bike but it is the wrong color. I got all the stickers off but I'm having a tough time getting the glue residue off. Does anybody know any special tricks or solvents that won't attack the paint? Thanks for any help.

If you can, get the 'gel' in the silver spray bottle (check auto section @ wal-mart ) and let it sit for a few (like 10 mins if you can take it ) before wiping off with a soft cloth.

The warmth of the whole affair will affect things too, don't advise doing it in cold weather etc. cause the adhesive is less willing to budge.

Re: Glue Residue

Thanks to all. I just finished getting the glue off. I have no idea about the long term effects on the paint but Comet Bathroom Cleaner (liquid in spray bottle) erased any and all signs of glue residue. Who'd a thunk it. Thanks again.

probably did just as a good a prep job for the new paint as some 800grit sand paper. can I ask why you'd resort to such a rough cleaning agent? is the paint dull now?

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

The paint is not dull. However, the Comet did leave an ugly film. WD-40 wiped the film right off and now I have perfect upper cowl. Looks like brand new. Seriously.
