Clay bar is gentle. It wont harm anything if used even half way right.

I used gas to remove some kinda glue from the guage cluster in the dash of my new used truck, I tried everything, but I was worried being it was the speedo cluster and scared it would mess it up .

But it worked great , point is try the gas on a small spot first.



BTW what are you painting ?

WD40 will remove sticky chit just fine. Its safer then gas too. But, he doesnt have a sticky problem.
