Re: door guards glue.... how to get off

warm up the glue then wipe off. A hairdrier might work mind the paint tho or hot water. I seen people use an old credit card to scrape off then a bit of t-Cut!

happy testing!

have to agree, heat up the glue, wipe off what you can then use IPA, lighter fuel or petrol to remove any left over glue

Dont use white spirit or terps, it can fade the paintwork and there's no cheap cure for that.

Heat it up and scrape off what you can using an old credit card, then use autoglym intensive tar remover, worked really well for me
