Many times :cry:

There is no magic bullet for this Mike, it`s all or nothing.

Hard work and loads of elbow grease.

You`ll waste more time looking for a miracle solution that magically makes the gum disappear etc but it doesn`t work no matter what any snake oil salesman tells you.

We remove the outer plastic and then soften the gum with 2k thinners.

Once the gum is softened we scrape it off using a plastic cataloy spreader.

You won`t avoid soft scratches. You will need to polish or compound these out afterwards.

It is basically a horrendous time consuming job and i advise avoiding having to do it completely in the first place.

Gently warm it up, not too warm and peel off. It will most likely leave gum.

We use RapidTac Gum remover

http://www.rapidtac.com/rapid-prep.html

Best way is to spray it on leave for a 30-40 secs then spray again let it soften then scrape off and repeat.

The trouble with Thinners is obvious things like fire and smell also thinners is not very good for the skin.

Never had any complaints with RapidTac Remover over the past 12years of using.

Remember to wash of with water after using it.
