Using a clothes steamer to remove hydroturf.
OK so I learned something new Today, instead if scrubbing and scrapping with chemical and elbow grease to remove the hydro turf, I found that my clothes steamer works amazing and cheaper. Lol

OK to be fair it works on but no paint getting scratches. I still have to do the back and am hating myself

Those steam cleaners are great for removing graphics and tint as well. Generally it pulls the adhesive right off with it if you massage the area just right with the wand on the steamer. A lot less mess and clean up also.

For the traction mats I've always let it sit in gasoline (old or new) for about 5 minutes to let it soak in and start pulling. Sometimes using a chisel and lightly tapping with a hammer takes off a good chunk. Just careful not to bend the chisel too much, you'll start chipping and denting the fiberglass... good thing it gets covered up again.

i had to use alcohol and a razorblade on mine..i realized why no one had replaced the mats on the 16 year old ski before. PITA!

easiest way i found to remove glue was to get plastic razor blades and scraper. apply chemical of choice and get to it... takes the glue off without damaging the gel coat.
