    Question Sticker residue removal from hull?

    I removed the registration number from my ski and I want to get the sticky crap off.

    Can I use acetone or rubbing alochol to get it off?

    I used a heat gun to get the number off.

    No Acetone it removes paint! 3M makes an adheasive remover you can probly get at any body shop supply place. Works great.

    Fortunately the hull is gel coat and not paint. The acetone should not hurt it. Test in an inconspicuous spot first.

    Most modern paints, when fully cured, are unaffected by acetone.

    Acetone has the potential to get really aggressive when removing stuff. We start with WD-40 and if that doesn't work, Goof Off should do the trick.

    WD 40 does work. Goof off works as well. Rubbing alcohol should work too.

    As a auto painter for 18 years I agree. wd-40 you probubly allready have and works great. Just clean it well before you put the new numbers on.
