Help needed, Glue removal

The previous owner had the mighty door aero package on both doors, I cant stand them and took them off (breaking both of them in the process:s6: ) anyway I now have this glue to try and get rid of, it's not easy, a guy said Kero, I did and it's moving SLOWLY but i havent got a spare couple of weeks to get the job done. Anyone know what will remove it without taking the paint with it?

Thanks

If you are going to use nail polish romover, make sure you clean the remover off with lots of soapy water. It can eat into the paint!!!

All depends if it's Super Glue or double sided tape glue.

Kell, If it's super glue then the only way to get rid of it is to use Acetone (very bloody carefully). I have tried heaps of other stuff and nothing works.

BOF,
GIve Prepsol (Wax and Grease Remover) a go first. If that doesn't work use Acetone that will get ride of the glue. When you use it though the paint could be eaten up abit. Always have water and a clean rag. So after you wipe it with Acetone wipe it immediately with a clean damp cloth.

If the glue is only double sided tape glue then i found WD-40 works great.

easier solution
take the door off..

put a cargo net there.. you'll be different, but it might even look cool *grin*

you can just use a hot rag and rub it thoroughly if your afraid to use nail polish remover.. also you can use gaf tape or something and put on, rip off.. worked for me! :)
