    yea that's right oven cleaner. if this subject hasn't been covered yet. it works. the cab i baught was a 86 scottsdale, it had glued on door trim.i pulled the trim off , but the foam and glue stayed.so i used ovencleaner ,because my friend said it pulled lettering (painted) off of a truck. it worked so i thought i would try it on the glye and it worked. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Just be careful with that stuff! It's caustic and will eat your skin, eyes, etc. My wife got a small drop on her arm last week and didn't realize it until it had burned a hole through the skin on her arm. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    She's taking antibiotics because it started getting infected. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif But it's looking lots better now. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Another thing to watch out for is using that stuff on aluminum, epecially polished aluminum. Some caustics will really go to town attacking it.

    Best thing i've seen and used to take that crap off is a deal called an "Eraser Wheel", you can get them at an auto paint store. You chuck it up in at 3000rpm drill motor and it takes that crap right off, WITHOUT harming the paint under it what so ever /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    no kidding, i'll have to get that. cool the oven cleaner worked but it did trash the paint that was over the original paint. thats o.k. for me because i'm painting it anyway. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
