    i just purchased a new taco and it has a pin stripe that I want to remove. I used to use Tec 90 remove all back when I was in detail and loved it but I don’t want to order something. I want to go to the store tomorrow and buy something safe for paint to remove residue. What have you used or what should I buy?

    I tested an area tonight and it peels off fairly easily but leaves just a bit of residue here and there..

    Hand sanitizer works wonders. Has the striping been on long? Could cause the paint to be a slightly different shade.

    Id try some cheap hand sanitizer first. I always get rid of the decals when I get a vehicle. Works great.

    I would think a Good clay barring would take care of the residue.

    I was wondering if I could clay the residue or if it would get all in the clay?

    They use clay bars to finish getting pine tree sap off.

    I took off the front fender stripe about 20 min ago and used goo gone not goof off ... but I just don’t like to use that stuff. I love the tec 90 as it evaporates super fast !!!

    What.. it tastes good and can be used for many things besides eating. Get gum out of hair and can be used as leather/seat conditioner. The peanut oil.
