bodykit removed

I decided the body did not look good on my car looked "ricer", and also not practical since it's fiberglass. The fact that it's fiberglass makes it chip so easy with rocks on the highway. So here is my question I want to remove the excess glue that the kit was put on with. Any products that can do this?

Did you put it on yourself or have a body shop do it?

reason: If body shop, then they should be able to tell you what product would work and may assist.

Or if you did it yourself maybe some acetone (sp?)

You may want to give Goo Gone a shot,should be available at Target or some big chain retail store.

acetone may remove the paint. try goo gone, or better yet put some bug and tar remover on there and let it sit on there for a few minutes and it shold get it loose.

btw, how much did you pay fotr that body kit?
