      I had trouble finding "prepsol" when it was recommended to me, am I right to assume that is a brand name? I obviously don't know the right person yet.
      I ended up with Repco wax and grease remover and it's magic. Great for removing rego sticker residue from windscreens and such. I was told it is paint safe.

            turps was used before wax and grease remover was invented.

                  Using enamel spray cans, back yard job for a fairing that's past it's used by date. I ended up just using plain paper towels and water, it seems to have got it. I think most of the effect is actual the masking tape pulling little flecks of paint off.

                    custom painters go to a lot of trouble to get that effect

                      How do u find the exit clean? I always thought it had a strong petrol smell but was good cos it didn't evaporate super quick

                        Go to your local music shop and get some trumpet valve oil, should be a couple of dollars for a little bottle. It's a really mild petroleum distillate, kind of like sewing machine oil. Makes getting rid of any glue residue effortless. Never tried it on bike paint or plastics though, so not sure how it'll go. But I used it on the car a few times, worked a treat.

                              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.
