Yesterday, I went through the tech files looking for the mod help thread on foil deletes. I read on the foil delete thread that most people used an angle grinder with a wire brush to get the adhesive off. Not being able to get my hands on a grinder, I had to be resourceful & come up with my own way of getting the foil & adhesive off. Here's what I used:
Just in front of the knife is a double-edge razor blade. I used the knife to cut down the foil. It didn't take too long & I had the foil off & most of the media inside the foil off as well(had to use the knife because my utility knife was stolen 2 days ago!). I put the boost tube on top of my garbage can & lightly soaked the adhesive with the Goo Gone spray gel. I let it sit for about 5mins. I used the razor blade & a vise grip to scrape the adhesive off, & to my amazement, it worked much quicker & came off faster than I thought it would. The whole project took about 1 1/2hr.. Seems kinda long, but it wasn't & the razor didn't mark up the boost tube. Don't believe me? Check this out:
Once again, my camera doesn't do justice. This is the ghetto way of doing a foil delete for anyone who wants to, but can't get their hands on tools that would make it easier. I did it & it looks great!.....but now it's being sold because I don't need it anymore!
