I need ideas on removing old deck mat adhesive
Putting on new Hydro Turf this weekend and need some advice on how to best remove the adhesive that is remaining on the deck from the old mats. What was left of the mats just peeled off. I've tried using the heat gun, a 3M eraser wheel, Acetone and Lacquer Thinner. Any other ideas?

Goof-Off might work
Check it first on an inconspicuous place to make sure it doesn't dissolve the actual surface finish.

Lay a towel on the area and soak it with gasoline let it sit wet for a few then towel off. Goof off also works if you let it sit wetted.

I used the medium reducer for automotive paint. Didnt evaporate too fast and worked well. Anything else I tried was evaporating too fast.

3m adhesive remover, and get the plastic razor blades at west marine, works great and the best to remove the glue

3m citrus based cleaner. Works great and gelcoat safe

I nabbed a can of citrus mold cleaner from work It didn't work very good, but in all fairness it is really for taking release agents off of injection molds. My neighbor had a bottle of "Specialty adhesive remover" he said he got from McMaster Carr.
