Default Removing Sticky Label Off Cart

This can be moved if need be . I am talking Club Car here .
Going to attempt to remove that long yellow instruction/warning lable from below dash on '87 CC be before painting. Have some Goo-Gone and some other stuff like that. What do you suggest? Also , I have read in Paint and Body section about what to use as final clean-up prior to painting but do not remember what's best . I have cleaned with a solution of TSP/Dawn and wiped down with alcohol . Have read and known about using paint thinner but it seems to be oil based? I have Acetone and may have Mineral Spirits. I just want the paint to adhere as best as possible and at times I'm prone to mess things up ! Thanks .

I would definitely NOT use acetone. The last time I used that stuff, it pretty much would dissolve anything hydrocarbon based... which would include the dash itself. I have used mineral spirits with great results in removing glues from plastics, etc. without ruining the surfaces.

I went to Home Depot and right by the Goo Gone was a spay can labeled for removal of adhesive stickers. I cannot remember the name but on the label it said it was safe for plastics so I tried it and it worked great. One tip, it took a lot of spray and patience to get it all clean.

" PB Blaster " makes a good sticker remover that won't harm ( most ) plastics. It says to try it on a hidden place first. I've used it to remove bumper stickers from plastic auto bumpers and it worked great!

Since the body is plastic, go light on the heat...

To remove my club car emblem, I flashed it with the heat gun and used wd-40 to remove the adhesive. It took a bit, but it came off nicely.

Thanks ! I've already been thinking about removing that ugly thing ! Trying to come up with some kind of monogram looking , or something like that - I think - with wifes nickname or such to go there . Maybe get some LEDs and spell it out ! LOL. I like flashing lights and she does not so I'll have them flashing !!!
