Afternoon all,

I am hoping that you lovely people can offer me some advice on the best ways to remove vehicle vinyl and glue residue? I gather that heat helps but where should I heat and are there glue removers you can buy? If so, are some better than others?

Help is appreciated!

Eric

Hi Eric,

Using a heat gun to heat the vinyl will help you to remove it, just ensure you dont use too much heat which may damage the paint or plastic trims.

Then using a glue remover such as Tar and Glue remover (most auto suppliers sell this) or if you look at companies such as Grafityp they offer products design for the removal of glue from vehicles.

wall paper steamer stripper is my weapon of choice, if its a real wrap material it should not require a lot of heat and should be very little glue left behind,
advantage of the wall paper stripper is it only goes up to 100 deg and gets the heat in to the panel not just the surface of the vinyl.
generally if its leaving a lot of glue its too hot. if its snaping then too cold.
