Would alot of lighter fluid hurt my paint or clearcoat if I used it to remove some old goo from some nasty rubber side moldings?
Thanks,
Jeff

Get some goo-gone. It's been shown to be the best thing you can use to get rid of glue and stuff that's on your car. It's pretty cheap, you can find it at wal-mart. Dont' forget to wax it afterwards though. It's a good idea to wax the car after using any solvent-type solution.

Goo gone warns that it may hurt some paints. Screw that.
I am using lighter fluid right now, and I am having no problems.
Now I need to polish, wax, claybar, and buff....

Actually Coca Cola works pretty well. Just don't let it sit too long or it will eatup your paint.

don't use lighter fluid man, use maguire's step 1 cleaner, that worked wonders for me, when i took off my 240sx emblem, it left glue gun like crap on it, i just keep rubbing it w/ the step 1 cleaner, it went away. &nbsp;also, i got some duct tape melted to my headlight, i heatguned it and step 1 cleaned it, it went it away, wow...

LOL, that just sounds funny to me...

"Now I need to polish, wax, claybar, and buff...."

Doesn't claybar come before wax? &nbsp;I've never used the stuff (have some but never used it) but I'm pretty sure you wax after claybar...

Claybar is actually a big assed clay bar. You use it after you wash to remove oxidation and assorted nasty-ness about once a year. I didn't believe it either, the first time I heard of it.

use a little nail polish remover. acetone dissolves most chemical adhesives. just dont let it sit on the paint too long, it wouldnt be good for it or the clear-coat, but it'll work very fast on the gunk, so it shouldnt take too long
