  • What to do with the goo

    The new car I'm bulidng has this goo on the doors that used to hold on the sound/dust shield. It's sticky and clingy like dog ****. Does anyone know how to get it off and remove the residue?

    Aren't you gutting the doors and removing the inner panel anyway? Why clean it if it is going to be removed. If you need to clean we have had some success by scraping away the excess and then cleaning with mineral spirits. Nasty job. Wear your worst clothes.

      The part that is pictured won't be cut out. I like to have that inner top rail so I can hang the glass panels in there when washing the car. Much of the rest of it will be cut off. I'll get with the scraper and mineral spirits.

        That goo is much better behaved in winter.

        Freezing it off with dry ice and a chisel is an option but I found that to be a pain. That seems to work better on goo in a pan.

        Gasoline or goo gone should help get it off.

          Bring plenty of towels and WD40 / PB blaster.

            You wash the car?

              WD-40 is indeed excellent for this and most other clean ups. Buy the gallon container though.

                You don't?

                Yes, usually before each event after all the service and maintenance is done, I wash it and use Mothers R3 to remove all the rubber marks.
