    Help Removing the gum from Ferrari ruberised plastic parts.

    Help Removing the gum from Ferrari rubberized plastic parts.

    Does anyone know for sure that using denatured alcohol on Ferrari rubberized plastic is the best way to remove the sticky black gooey or is their something better?

    Use Goo Gone.



    It's used a lot in the Chrysler 300 community to remove side molding on the car, oem badges and dealership stickers.

    I use wife-b-gone
    It removes all goo and foreign objects from any sports car.
    Its made out of plastic and the main ingredient is called visa and MasterCard. Though it creates its own mess to clean up, mainly bills but some problems are better dealt with for the long run then to deal with gook build up in any sports car.....

    Another bit of advice above!!!!

    Make sure you donít use it too much, mater of fact in the current weather conditions err err environment use it very sparingly as it could rune the over all value of the said sports car.....

    I found the Goo Gone at Walmart. Worked great! Thanks all for the advice.

    I also have another product I had for years. Probably about the same stuff. It's called Icky Sticky Un Stuck. I found it at a trade show about 10 years ago. It is designed for removing glue used in screen printing. Also citrus based.

    I have done screen printing. It has come a long way since the days i did it. Some of the cleaners were so brutal. It amazing the guys in the screen cleaning room had any brain cells left after a day!

    I have not had good luck with Goo Gone. I did use denatured alcohol on mine.
