    Question for those that\'ve taken their carpet out

    How in the, uhh, heck, do you get that insulation crap off of the floor? Most of it was easy to just pull right out, but there is some stuck on the floor in a couple spots, I assume I could just keep killin it with my little scraper, but there's gotta be a faster way

    3M Adhesive remover works well.

    When it's warm it peels up easy... I simply used a hair dryer for mine... worked well enough.

    I just left it in. With the floor mats in place you don't notice it. I'm por-15'ing it in a week or two so it don't bother me any.

    I'd leave mine in too, but I decided to get it Line X'd when I get the exterior done.
