    Turf removal

    Man is it fun to remove hydro-turf! I did a quick search on it and read that some use heat guns, but I find that the turf starts to melt before the glue releases. The turf just rips into small pieces when heated. I tried using 3m adhesive remover to soak through the turf, but it doesn't soak through. It will work on the glue when the turf is out of the way.
    What do the Pro's do? The way it's going, it's gunna take days!

    Goof Off? Did it soak through the mat? Or was it used after the mat was removed?

    If you let it sit out in the sun for a few years it will just fall off by itself... Mine did.
