    Goop-be-gone works good. The sign & lettering shops also have some stuff that they may sell you. I think they call it Orange Peel or something like that. The stuff works real good.

    I used a heat gun and a putty knife to get the layer of glue up, piece of cake, then used acetone to get rid of the sticky residue....

    I use Acetone, let it sit for 10 minutes, then re-apply, let it sit again for 10 minutes then scrape it off with a puddy knife. Was really easy to do. Hope it helps.
