Ok so this subject will come up sooner or later so i'll post a solution now.
I had placed 3mm Cool Gray Seadek strips on my gunwale tops to use as step pads. Worked real well except that 3mm is not thick enough imo so i wanted to remove and try some 5mm Storm Gray. So i started to remove it and it leaves behind a very tacky glue surface that nothing seems to remove!
Researching the Seadek site i found a comment about using mineral spirits, let it site for 10 minutes then remove that with acetone. Worked like a charm without issue. Re-wax the surface and your done.

Neither Goof Off or Goo Gone will remove it, trust me. Now gas probably will take it off but i didn't want to use gas on the gelcoat so close to the upholstery. Not to mention using gas isn't exactly the safest method now is it?2007 Mobius LSV

Funny. I'm drinking my brother's homemade beer tonight. It's a little varnishy, but I'm not removing a pad. Oh well.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!
