    I am trying to prep the inside of my blazer for a spray on liner but I can't seem to get the adhesive off used by the manufacture to glue on the carpet padding. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I caught hell trying to do this too. I ended up using a wire wheel, it does get everywhere but if you stop every once and a while and vaccuum up the stuff it wont be as bad. You could also try using a paint scraper or use a chemical such as Acetone or Zylene

    I used 3M adhesive remover (I think any brand will work- this was on sale at Pep Boys so I got it) and it worked for the most part. Some spots were very stiff and not coming off. I had to wire wheel those and scrape them with a razor blade. It was a HUGE pain to get those spots off. But I'm glad I did it because the carpet was very nasty and gross!

    There are remover wheels for drills, I believe they are called "paint and varnish stripper". Basically black plastic fibers with a good ammount of airspace. Its not a great deefinition so maybe someone else can describe them better. They did wonders on everything in my truck before i did the bedliner. Although I didn't use them on glue.
