I HATE carpet glue!!!!!

Ok, so I got the carpet and padding out no problem, used Goof-Off to take care of the glue which it ate up like a fat lady with a pizza, but now I'm stuck with glue residue all over the place that does NOT want to let go of the tub. Acetone helps but it's taking entirely too much to be practical. Any suggestions?


3" SUA, 31" BFG A/Ts, swaybar and trac bar removed, anxious for me to start her 318 swap

I took a wire brush on the grinder. If you are using acetone. Soak a rag in it, lay the rag on the glue, cover with aluminum foil. Let stand for 10 min, then wipe. I used two or three rags, so one could soak while I cleaned up another. WEAR A RESPIRATOR! Acetone is bad stuff.

I used mineral spirits. Tore through that stuff and I didn't have any left over residue.

Not much motion in the ocean, but I'm the captain.

Sweet. I was going to suggest white vinegar - it works better at sticker residue etc. than commercial products specifically for adhesive residues. Vinegar with a tiny bit of kitchen oil can work too.

I'll try some mineral spirits on a really big, old sticker that the PO stuck square on the rear window. Sticker is so thin that I can't grab it to tear it up, but scraping scratches the sepia window.

Good luck man. I used a an old microfiber towel that I soaked. Even stuck insulation covered in glue came up. I've used acetone with some success, but did leave a little residue.
