I need some goo removing experts(sticker scum)


Hello DIYers, another trip to the think tank. A buddy of mine purchased a trailer, one of those big ones used for hauling race cars. He wants to sell it, and one of the potential buyers made him a nice offer, as long as all of the stickers were removed. So, we went to work with heat guns and razor blades and got all of the stickers off. This is on an aluminum surface. The glue left behind is another story. We have tried laquer thinner, gasoline, paint thinner, goo-gone, heat, etc. Nothing works. Any ideas from the painters? Thx in advance.

Call around the sign companies. They use a decal adhesive remover. You may find it in a good automotive supply shop, where they sell auto paint.

I like Goo Off too. I have had good luck with the spray bottle version of Goo Gone in GEL form but never liked the liquid much. Oops is another brand. Krud Kutter sometimes works.



In days past, I used to have rubber cement thinner on hand (you can get it in quarts and gallons at an art supply store). It was great at getting adhesive residues off. It is not oily like others mentioned but evaporates quickly though so it will not do you much good on a hot exterior surface. I remember especially getting residue from baked on window parking decals loose in record time. It is great for getting tape residue from poster corners and so forth off walls because it does not leave an oily residue.


Check an auto parts store for gasket and adhesive removers they might have.

Some have had luck using WD40 for sticker removal.

Get some plastic razor blades so you don't scratch up the aluminum. They are handy to have around for other things.

Of course you know to use all of these things only with adequate ventilation.

Please post what finally works for you. We all come across this situation.

Goof off has always worked for me. You may want to apply some, then cover it with plastic rap so it can marinate for a while. Test it on an inconspicuous spot......you don't want to ruin the trailer! If you can find the gel version of Goof off that's even better as it stays put.
