  • How to remove residue from masking tape?

    Just spraying my fairing and was using masking tape between coats, how can i remove the residue leftover from the masking tape? I'm worried about putting the clear coat over the residue but don't want to use any chemicals either.

      I've got some of that Orange Power, i was a bit worried it might effect the clear coat though. Have you used the Orange Power between coats before?

                  I suppose the euca oil makes sense as the paints are oil based...

                      Get an aerosol can of Bosisto's Eucalyptus Spray from a pharmacy or supermarket. Very useful for removing sticker residue.

                      One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

                      My waterbed broke this morning. Oh, I don't have a waterbed. Bugger.

                          Wax n Grease remover is what the pros use, there pros because they use it - simple

                          Don't use anything else as it can eat into the paint work and make it tacky as its still fresh and gassing, in turn it may damage it.


                          Wax and Grease remover

                            its a bitch when that happens!

                            use a better quality tape is my first suggestion, but if your an occasional painter,well...........

                            so, what kind of paint have you used? if its acrylic chances are the prepsol will stain the paint,even fresh 2 pac will stain.

                            try a bit of dishwashing liquid and push on the residue gently.most should come off but a light sand will remove the rest.
                            [MENTION=6767]Stephan[/MENTION] that ok?

                              Definitely NOTHING with oil in it, otherwise you'll only have to use something to remove all traces before you apply the next coat. Wax and Grease remover for sure.
