How to remove genkem glue?

Post by Christo » Wed 13 May 2015, 10:52

Morning All.

Does anyone have any advice on how to remove old genkem glue from my car?

I removed old door rubbers but struggle to remove the old glue.

Thank You
Kind Regards
Christo

Try Cutex remover (Not ACETONE!!) It is gentle on the paintwork! :mrgreen:

Try Xylene. Most builders or penny pinchers stock it. Removes glue and residue without any damage to paint or plastic.

Normal power paraffin. Apply with a rag and let it work for a minute or so, then rub it off. Won't harm the paint.

I use silicone remover.

It is available from auto paint supply stores. I get mine from Auto Paint Centre in Centurion. It does not harm the surface being cleaned, whether it is painted metal or plastic.
