Footwell Mat Removal
Alright I ordered a new set of Hydoturf mats for my 650. The back end not a problem as there is nothing on, footwells another story. I bought it this way and have no idea what he used to put them on. Does anyone have any general idea on what adhesive remover is best to use to get old mats off?
Any help or suggestion would be appreciated guys.

if you got a set of hydroturf there should be some VERY helpful hints on removing and installing the mats on the instruction sheet!!

I went out and just started lightly pulling on them and they pulled right off . There is of course adhesive stuck on the footwells but I think the acetone will get that off. The new mats will be here in a couple of days and you do get 15% off if you put Green Hulk in the comments section when you check out, about a $12-$14 savings . I hope there is some suggestions for what to use to put new mats on included in the instructions.

The Hydro Turf I have, has the glue already on them. Just peel and stick, then roll with heavy pressure.

When I removed mine on this particular ski, i used a heat gun to peel the upper layer of Adhesive and Plastic backing up. I used a metal putty knife and it worked real well. After that there was a nice layer of the adhesive, I work at a Vinyl Graphics shop so we have this solvent made of orange oil (called orange peel or something like that) and it will turn the adhesive into snot in about 5 minutes.
We have put the Hydro-Turf on a few skis, we never used contact cement, we always used the pressure sensitive adhesive sheet they give in the kit, never failed us before!!
The orange oil is like x10 more effective than acetone and smells a lot nicer. So i would highly recommend using it if you can.
either way good luck with how you decide to do it!!
p.s.----> most definitely have the surface as clean as possible, a nice denatured alcohol rub down will serve you well.!!
