Question for Paint Gurus

Hey All,

Just bought my truck two weeks ago and it came with the rotten Rain Guard Mod around the door windows. Well tonight I got tired of looking at them and yanked them off. My question is: Is there a paint friendly solvent out there to get rid of the rotten adhesive around the window?

I use Goo Gone. You can get it at Walmart.

+1 for the Goo Gone. The can I have that is a bazillion years old looks like an old lighter fluid filling can with the pivoting spot top.

On a related note, anyone know of a window rain guard that fits inside the window frame? I don't want stick-on rain guards on my white paint and dark tinted windows. Anyone make a quality rain guard that fits within the window frame?

+2 on the Goo Gone. You might try WD40 also.

Lol I just rubbed that gunk off with my finger, took slot of rubbing, but just came off, took 5 minutes for both sides I didn't use anything, and as for the rain guards check eBay and look under parts for a bronco, should generate alot more options, I found mine in the junk yard and just slid them under the rubber window track at the top, it's supposed to screw in but I didn't feel like it.

I went to the sherwin williams store and picked up the "magic eraser wheel" dont spin it too fast, the goo gone wasn't working all that well. but the eraser wheel took me about an hour to do all four windows.

thanks all, managed to get work on it this weekend and was able to peel most of the adhesive off with a little elbow grease and sunshine on the black paint...looks a lot better. Will look into the goo gone to get the tough stuff off...just afraid with all the time the adhesive spent on there that some of the clear coat may have come off...not that oxidation hasnt already happened on my truck lol

If your good you can use goo-off, goo-gone like above. But to make it easier carefully use a razor blade on the flat areas (around a 20-30 degree angle.)
