yea definitely don't use as on plastic, that could eat it right up.
Razor blading it soft is a better idea since you plan on paint, try not to go through primer on metal if you do it on the chassis at all.

There is another stripper BUT is safe for urethanes and bumpers. Made by SEM called....get this, bumper stripper. Lol. Not trying to insult anyone, just found the name to be incredibly original. Your local bond store will have it. A thing to note is that SEM recently changed the name to XXX bumper stripper. I've used it and it works really good and is like $10 for an aerosol can. Another thing would be "orange peel". I use it in my business doing vinyl graphics to remove old residue from graphics tht were removed. And the rubber eraser wheel is another awesome tool which I have personally used before as well. I would advise the wheel or "orange peel" first as it doesn't effect the finish and use the SEM stripper as a last resort and it takes paint with it which makes thing a pain. Hope tht helps

I used WD-40 and a heat gun to get two-year-old duct tape residue off my car. Worked like a charm and didn't damage the paint.

I learned the other day that "WD-40" stands for Water Displacement #40. I guess it took em 40 trys to get it right.

I like to wash my hands and face with it, great cleansing action. It feels especially good in your eyes.

i had to clean all my body lines and that black stripe that goes around the car just recently... already mentioned, wire wheel, i bought a fine one, worked wonders. Just dont be stupid and dig in. Also some good 150/220 sandpaper at the end for a final smooth.

I removed mine with a disc sander and 180 grit paper just go easy and it will come off fine and even if you end up going to deep you can just fill it in with glazing putty since your painting the car anyway
