A little bit of carnuba wax or Novus #1 of a soft polishing cloth should remove it.

Rub your finger against the side of your nose and buff with that. The natural skin oils will take that glue residue right off.

I would try a cloth dampened with 70% rubbing alcohol.

Model Master as in Testors or Detail Master? I wasn't aware of Testor having foil. I have tried Detail master and let's just be nice and say I will stick with BMF.

Oh, man, I'm sorry. That stuff is nasty. I would try Roger's suggestion with the alcohol.

We have some stuff called "Sticky Stuff Remover" which is sort of orange-smelling. It's intended for getting tape or sticker residue off (eg price stickers, or when your kids plaster their beds with Snoopy stickers and want to replace them with Bratz ones five years later). It works a treat, and has no effect on paint or gloss coated areas (though check for YOUR paint and gloss first, obviously). Came from a homeware store in the cleaning products section. Lemon juice might work as well...

bestest,

M.

Goo Gone should work pretty well. I use that on my 1:1 car to get rid of bug guts. I would assume lightly dampening the towel or cloth and gently rubbing the adhesive off. Make sure to try it on the underside of the body on the overspray where you cannot see to see if it will attack the paint before getting after the glue on the shiny side. I suppose when you get the chance or the money you could pick up a sheet of BMF and ease your frustration next time. I have almost a whole sheet of the DM stuff I cannot give away.

it will clean up if your patient. My suggestion is to not use that foil again. the paint is nice on that car. I would use a silver sharpie before I used that foil again. What a nightmare!

Don't consider that if your using synthetic lacquer paints like Testor's. It will rub some of the paint off.

Rub your finger against the side of your nose and buff with that. The natural skin oils will take that glue residue right off.

I was also told that this method is good for giving interiors a slight shine like leather. Paint the interior with a flat coat, then rub the nose grease on the high points.

Most important.. it's the stuff on the OUTSIDE of your nose, not the INSIDE! :) And it's free!

Just want to let you all know. Thank you so much for the tips and advise. Looks like the goo gone worked like a charm....the caprice is back on the bench and ready to go. Wish me luck with the foil.

Thanks.
