    We pulled the ghetto Genuine Artifical Wood trim off the dash, and it left some heavy duty glue. Tried rubbing it out, some paint thinner, it didn't work.

    Anyone have expereince with this?? Would Jasco work? i really have no idea...

    Brake Parts Cleaner (in moderation) works very well on the 3M Spray Adhesives I've used when carpeting subwoofer boxes, etc.

    Try a little on a rag and dab at the glue to see if it works for you..... /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    What about mineral spirits, prep-sol, any kind of solvent, most glues are solvent based! Carefully try a small section, so you don`t distort whatever you are working on.
