    Acetone will get the glue off.

    Do I pour acetone over top of pad and let it soak through? It seems to just break of when I try pull off the pad.

    Try 3M adhesive remover, it works very well. I use it for all kinds of stuff. you'll need to remove the gator grip first. Oh by the way you can get the 3M at any well equipped auto parts store, Orielly's is where i get mine works great on decal removal too and to clean the carbon off the bumpers on two strokers.

    NO! use a razor blade to cut away the pad from the hull and then use acetone to get the glue up. You can also squirt a little acetone under the pad as you pull it up.

    Just be careful of acetone if you have a painted surface!

    Why are you going with hydro turf over the gator grip?

    I just found these for the RXT and was thinking of going gator grip.

    Is hydro turf better. I want something that can grip barefeet without ripping off the bottom of my feet.

    ht is better if ride with shoes...gators are better for bare feet. AP designs is the ultimate if you ride barefoot.

    After 2 years the gator grip look faded and dull plus i like the hydro logo on the rear boarding platform. The gator grip is just black on the boarding platform. I went with hydro just to change I needed a fresh look

    I think I'm going to go with AP Designs after mxl16's comment.
    I emailed AP Designs to find out how to order their RXT set.
