Bare metal residue on paint
Posted by Lurch63 on Saturday, June 30, 2018 12:41 PM

Hi guys. Wasn't really sure where to post this. Hope it fits in here. 

I masked off the roof of my 69 impala kit with bare metal about a week or so after I painted it to spray the lower 1/2. When I took off the bare metal it left a residue on it that so far has been a real 'joy' to try & remove. 

Any ideas what will get it off w/o harming the paint.

I've had success rolling a q-tip against the adhesive.

P.S. This is just the right thread. ;)

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)
