Prepping the hull for HYDROTURF?
I removed the old OEM carpet today. I did per the directions and tried to clean the hull with acetone to remove all the old adhesive. No luck. Any ideas? I went through a gallon and I am no better off than when I started. Before you ask, yes it was acetone. Yes I can read. It's rare, but we MS folks surprise you every now and then.

I took my ski to my window tint guy and he put my mats on for me, he used some industrial strength adhesive and wax remover.

I have used WD40, Gas and even the 3m adhesive remover to get the glue and mats off. SO just a few more thing to try.

Scrape the thick stuff off with a razor blade then use brake cleaner.
Sand the gelcoat with 150 grit under the mats to help the glue grab.
Good luck and take your time with the install it will be worth it.

I just put new mats on mine. I used goo gone and a razor blade. If you use goo gone, you need to let it soak into the glue so you can scrape it right up. Then use the acetone for final cleanup. Hope this helps.

I have used WD-40, 3M adhesive remover, acetone, razor blade(s), and some foul language. Shit is still on there. I have been scrubbing for hours. Been through a gallon of acetone, 4 razor blades, 2 bottles of 3M adhesive remover. I am quite pissed. I will add a photo. Let me know what you think....
