    Mat glue removal - pain in the ass

    Got new Hydroturf mats for my ski and went about the job of removing the old ones. I used 3M glue remover and it took over an hour to to get the old glue off. I went through 2 cans. Nothing else worked nearly as good as 3M.

    And, it pisses me off that Hydroturf doesn't come with 3M adhesive already applied.

    Rant off.

    Edit: Whoops, meant to post this in general discussion forum. Mods please move it if necessary.
