      Question What To Use To Remove Adhesive From The Door Edge Guards? (A Repeat)

      Sorry, this is a repeat post. I saw my old post on here for this. But don't see a way to bring it up to the 'front of the line' so I get an answer.
      I never got around to replacing my door edge guards 4 years back. I got the noticeable glue residue off the doors with I think 'Goo B Gone'. BUT now it is time do remove them totally and replace. I need to clean up the doors inside and out on the edges. But it is caked with all that glue residue and dirt and wax,etc...
      Ok..simple question. Will 'spray brake cleaner' destroy my paint??

      I tried a few drop of it on a cloth to remove some glue off the rocker panel and it came right off! BUT something tells me that this stuff is NOT suppose to touch paint.
      Is that right? There is SO much old glue,etc... it will take hours of rubbing to get them clean with like 'Goo B Gone'.
      So can I use the brake cleaner, or will that eat the paint? If so, what is stronger than 'Goo B Gone', that wont eat the paint?

      Thanks.

      For getting most things off paint I use Eucalyptus Oil. For road tar, Kerosene on a rag and wash that off after with normal car wash suds.

      Edit: I buy both from my local supermarket. Eucalyptus Oil in a 100ml or 200ml bottle and Kero in a 750ml bottle.

      where do you get either in SMALL amounts? Not gallons? Eucalyptus oil sounds like a organic/home remedy that will take hours of soaking on the door, then hrs.of rubbing to get anything off the paint. No??

      I use goo gone. Its a citrus based adhesive remover and works pretty well IMO.

      regardless of what you pick, put a small amount on a rag and rub somewhere inconspicuous to see if it removes paint.

      3m adhesive remover comes in a qt.. that is what I use if not using an eraser wheel. If you use it, wear gloves. No matter what you choose the florida heat has made that glue nearly permanent.
