sticky stuff removal..

When I bought my truck it had that stick on chrome rocker panel trim. I didn't like it so I peeled it off, as well the other door trim.

That left me with large sections of foam tape still stuck there.. so I used a heat gun and plastic putty knife.

NOW.. Im stuck with all the little residue, the sticky crap and little parts the putty knife couldn't scrape.. Adhesive remover doesn't really appear to be doing anything-though its cheap stuff, so maybe that has something to do with it?

SO-ideas? How do I get all that off and get it nice and clean?

How bout goo gone? Heat and goo gone? Im at a loss.. it really doesn't want to come off.

It's below freezing out there too.. soo.. keep that in mind.

If it doesn't move and should: WD40.
If it does move and shouldn't: Duct tape.

I used heat and thumbs. You are going to have blisters but you can roll it off with your thumb. It is tedious but it works!

I have always had good luck 3M adhesive remover. Some other stuff I have picked up at the Dollar store of all places, it's n a clear white spray bottle... it's called Awesome Cleaner, itís like a buck 50 or so and that stuff will amaze you at what it will cut through, hasnít hurt any paint or any finish I have ever used it on Ė Good Luck and congrats on the new truck

Well I finally got it all off today. It took the heat gun, goo gone, and a lot of elbow grease. Since it was 20 degrees out there it was nice to have the heat gun; just shoot a little heat on the hands when they go numb. Still needs some clay bar action and wax.. but its too cold.
Thanks for the help guys!
