    Your shop is a lot cleaner than mine, RD. Iím still trying to remove sanding dust from skim coating and sanding the Corvette, and that was in a separate room!

    RD: I like your copper welding backer idea... WHY haven't you offered them for sale to us here?

    Hi 55RD,
    Thanks for posting that - very clever. I have a former boss who after a lot of welding school training, repurposed himself as a welder. I think he might have some occasion to use the tip.
    Thanks, Doug

    Here is a good tip that works good for removing gummy adhesive left behind from stickers/decals, etc. In my case today I finally got around to removing some Velcro strips someone had stuck to the vinly dash on one of my cars like 20 years ago for a sunshade, and it was in a hard-to-reach area that couldn't be scrapped with anything, and I didn't want to use any solvents. I just tear off a chunk of very sticky Gorilla tape and keep sticking it on the adhesive and just keep pulling it off a little at a time, and after several slow pulls with the tape the adhesive all came off clean.

    RD: Have you ever tried 3M adhesive remover? It works great and very quickly and non abrasive...

    Yes, I have tried 3M adhesive remover, but sometimes just a piece of sticky tape is an easier solution for most stuff. If that doesn't work then I try 3M, or something else, like trying to remove widow tint adhesive of which I've found nasty Acetone works.
