Goo Gone vs. WD 40 - searched couldn't find an answer to my ?

OK I have searched and read a 100 threads, just want to know if WD 40 works better than Goo Gone as an adhesive remover?

I debadged my truck and painted them black, there is still a ton of adhesive on there, I used a ton of Goo Gone and a lot of work and didn't get far. I have used goo gone before to remove badge adhesive, window tint, stickers, etc. this stuff is just not working this time. Will WD 40 work better, also does Autozone or Home Depot carry the 3M eraser wheels for drills, just curious I am going to the store tomorrow.

Any other suggestions, anyone ever put their badges back on on top of some adhesive residue?

i would think it would work better, i work with duct tape alot and spray glue, have used alot of mastic removers, orange sol (all types) neugenic mastic remover (low odor) and have used wd-40 to remove the glue on my hands, i have used goo gone on some projects and i didn't think it work as well as wd-40. when i de-badged i used gasoline which seem to take it all off, over a year of having my truck. you shouldn't have any problems re badging on a smooth surface.

I have always used 3M Adhesive Remover. It's made specifically for removing residual adhesive. A few drops on a paper towel....wipe back and forth and the adhesive "balls up"......turn the paper towel over with a few more drops.....wipe again and it's clean.

Use your fingernail, that gets 90% of it off. For the remaining 'outline' the you will undoubtedly have, take some Cleaning Compound like Meguiars Ultimate Compound and rub it by hand in a circular motion around the area, use a little bit of pressure. Put some fresh wax on and you're good to go.

I always used WD40. works great, doesnt eat clear coat (In my experience)


Use it to get adhesives off from decals, overspray of sunscreen from tourists, etc

While I'm not going to debate wether WD40 damages your paint or not, its always smart to use the proper tools and chemicals for the job at hand, ESPECIALLY when giving advice to others. Remember that you're telling someone to use a lubricant with a primarily petroleum based product on their paint of their 30 thousand dollar truck. WD40 also contains solvents.... something to keep in mind.

I used goo gone and an old crappy credit card. But didn't push very hard. Sprayed it on and let it sit for 5 minutes then scrapped it right off.

I used both to remove the crap left behind on my door trim on my Ram. Both seemed to work about the same to me. Just took a lot of time, soaking it, and elbow grease. A real PITA.

Brake cleaners are usually terrible for paint...ha

OK so I am pretty sure my truck was debadged and rebadged at one point because the glue from them was not budging, I got most of it off but the rest wasn't moving.

I tried goo gone, another safe for paint adhesive remover (I forget the name), WD 40, and even went as far as trying gasoline (used to use it all the time to strip wax off surf boards), nothing worked. Thoroughly washed my truck after each attempt and finally waxed the areas as well, no issues wit my paint.

I painted my badges, and reattached them over the little glue that was remaining, I doubt they will fall off or have any issues, while the job doesnt look 100% professional it look great to the average passer by and I am happy with it. If inspected closely you can see some of the glue but you really have to be looking for it.

Brake cleaner sprayed onto a rag always worked best for me but it will dull your finish so you will need to wax and buff when done.

Oh and to the other off-topic Texans, GO RANGERS!!!

Hit it with a hair dryer or heat gun.

Get the residue warm, not burning, and it helps a lot to get it off.

Used the 3M remover as well, works great and I haven't harmed paint yet.
