PO put window deflectors on my Jeep. They're starting to come off. I hated them from day one, but was worried about ruining the paint.
These stupid things:
I was going to wait until after finals to finish this, but the Jeep had other plans. The rear, passenger side deflector came off some and started smashing into the side of the Jeep at speed. The plan was to just take off the one that one and find a method that works.
You can see how much of the thing had come off...
I gathered some supplies that I had sitting around. I didn't get the eraser or fishing line yet--I was in a big hurry and didn't want the thing flapping in the wind anymore. So Goof-Off and dental floss made due.
This is what was left after cutting it off with the dental floss:
And then about ten minutes into cleaning off the glue with goof off and a rag it started raining. I quit and went back inside. If it stops, I'll go out and finish the other windows. This is what it looked like right as it started to rain:
The Goof Off and rag worked pretty well. I'm thinking about trying one of the Mr. Clean "Magic Erasers" tomorrow to see if that works. There were a couple of scratches in the paint, but I'm pretty sure most of them were from the #$%*ing thing banging in the wind. Hopefully they all buff out.
