    Ok HERD i m in need of advice. As you can see by the pics when I removed the Harley stickon madalion it came of and the rubber and glue stayed. Im not goin to use gasoline or lighter fluid as this will ruin the paint and it to close to HERDstock to repaint. I know we ve talked about this before on hdf but any suggestions will be appreaciated.

    i used a hair dryer on the reflector removal on the front fork tubes..(rear fender as well) . i applied just enough heat to soften the glue, and rolled it off with my thumb...it worked like a charm...the paint is clear coated "under" the glue, and you should have success with this method...

        Goo Gone is a good product or WD-40 works good too!

              nope, not unless you have the gas cap off while your working...LOL !!

              In that case, run fast !!

              run the dryer on low to start, and see if it will produce the rolling effect. if not, go to the next setting...you dont want to heat the tank any hotter than you can hold your hand too......g

                I have used goo gone on many things, including chrome, but never on automotive paint. It took the glue off my chrome dipstick when the dealer's round badge fell off.

                  Dixie...... it's not paint. It's powdercoating. Laquer thinner, or paint thinner (reducer) works wonderful and won't harm the surface. Rewax afterwards.

                  If you doubt it, try a little on the rear fender, under the seat, and you'll see it's fine.

                        you can also get some stuff from Autozone, I think it's called Sticker Shock, it will disolve any adhesive. In the vinyl sign industry, I have always used some stuff called Glue Off.......it's an orange citrus based product that works super great, and quick, but I don't think it is readily available

                            It's just me , but I would use solvent and not heat to loosen the remains up. It won't damage the finish at all using solvent, goo gone,or WD 40.
