Hi Guys,

I'm looking to remove the standard black door sills with Stainless Steel ones acquired from Type 911. After taking the balck ones off, there is a lot of double sided sticky tape left on the car which I need to remove.

What's the best way of doing it?

Try either white spirit - diluted a little - or nail polish remover.

For both, apply with toilet roll & wipe immediately off.

Thanks Julian, I'll give that a go!

(Just a bit worried how you found out about using nail polish remover :wink: )

Easiest way; Get someone else to do it.
Best way; Hot soapy water

Normally I would, but it said that it was an easy job (yeah, it might be easy for some!!) and I've started it now!!

White spirit (neat), Meths (great to celebrate with) or hot soapy water.

None of the above will damage the paintwork - believe me because this is what my company does. (not remove all the time, but apply as well)

If however it's a glue, not double sided tape then I'm afraid it's a different issue - you're in the sh*t!

Dependant on type of glue- heat may harden it.

Most types of alcohol will work - choose your favourite tipple and then get your argument ready for why your car smells of alcohol for the traffic cops..

Got it off, hot water and a lot of "picking"!

Not doing that again in a hurry. :(
