If you dip it in water and then freeze it it might start to come apart.

MONTHS!!!!!!!

Exactly right depending on the glue and the amount of glue!

I have a Dodge 4x4 siting in the purple pond trying to loosen the glue and strip the paint but it has not worked yet. Been siting in the pond for almost 2 months. I need to find something a lil stronger to loosen and strip it.

But I have had luck with this method MANy time before. All depends on the glue and the paint.
