Try Ronsonol Lighter Fuel. It is used to refill Zippo lighters and such. It takes off a good bit of label goo.

Honda of Salt Lake has a tube hanging in the parts area that says "Decal Off" on it. So I know that someone makes a product specifically to do this. Search around.

If the WD-40 doesn't work, I always use Brakleen. It is a bit stronger than WD-40 and I have used it many times on plastics, chrome, the tank with no ill effects.

Griot's has 3-M Adhesive Remover that does pretty well. Probably could pick up at a Grainger Store sans "Seattle Markup".



I'd only go to the trouble of looking fer 3-M stuff if WD-40 did not work.



While doing my super secret squirrel work a few years ago, had opportunity to do an audit on a vendor that put WD-40 into cans. What a cool process. What a fire hazard.

Rub it with your thumb - keep pushing on the goo until it starts to peel up. It'll come off.

Naphtha!



Cheap, available, removes gooey stuff quickly, very safe on paint and plastics (won't even attack delicate lacquer finishes). Also good for removing beach tar from bare feet.



You are welcome.

Make sure you get the Chlorine free Brakeleen.. there are 2 types at our autozone, the Chlorine free is safe for this use, the normal (cheaper) cleaner harms painted surfaces, plastic, etc...
