Best Adhesive Remover That Is Paint Safe?
 
I want to remove my rear reflectors and the adhesive without damaging the paint surface. I'll use fishing line to take off the reflectors, but I'm not sure which adhesive remover is paint safe. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys!

I've used WD-40 for years. Safe on paint and the glue just rubs off after a soak.

Thanks Khaskins! That's a great idea.

Reflectors are gone and the WD-40 worked perfectly to get rid of the adhesive.

Thanks again Khaskins!

I used goo gone, worked great

nice to know WD40 works too

the problem with goo gone is, a few seconds too long and it will eat into the paint. WD-40 or zippo lighter fluid works best.

Rapid Remover...used in the sign industry, not sure where u could find it in your area, but most of the sign shops should have some...maybe they would part some out ? Or you could check it out online, I think it's www.rapidtac.com
