Now this car had no package tray or back seat. He is restoring it so I would be real careful if it had upholstry to deal with but I've been Praising the Lord all morning. :lol2 I tried everythihng I had in the cabinet and under the kitchen sink. NOTHING was working. He'd already removed the film but left the adhesive for me. :DD It's baked in the sun for a couple weeks waiting on me to have a spot for him. Whether that mattered or not :lol2. I finally resorted to nail polish remover. It was slow but working at least. I'd worked about an hour and a half and was not a quarter of the way finished and getting low on the bottle so I stopped and went to the beauty supply. :DD I thought I might try this stuff a friend of mine had left in a house I cleaned up for her. It's for removing sculptered nails and tips. It took polish off my toes lightening fast (even red). I got a gallon because it was cheaper...about ten bucks, and hoped I'd have some left for my toes :DD . Worse than the regular nail polish remover, this stuff evaporated real fast so I put it in a spray bottle and sprayed with one hand and wiped with a paper towel with the other. I was finished with the other three quarters of that back glass in ten minutes. :lol2

so sewage what is it?

It's fingernail polish remover only for tips and sculptured nails. Probably pure acetone.

Didnt the fumes bout k!ll you?

No worse smell than when all us girls get together and do our toe nails. I had the shop door open while I worked. At that point..I was so frustrated and wore out...it was either put my foot thru the glass and call the glass man :beer ...or smell it. :lol6

I use the lemony scented usually on my toes. :beer

I've tried polish remover in desperation a couple times in the past with no luck. This adhesive was one of those that nearly felt brittle. Usually my ammonia/409 will cut just about any of them but I've had a few that were really strange and stubborn. This was one of them. The regular polish remover was cutting it ,but I had to really scrub and keep the scrubby wet with the remover. When I used the new stuff (sculptured nail and tip remover) it was unbelievable how much better it worked.

Probably carcenogenic too. :beer I did wear gloves because I have enough trouble with my hands as it is especially this time of the year. I used the refinishing gloves because I was afraid it would eat thru Playtex or surgicals.

And the smell was not my toes willie. :lol6

Speaking of stinky toes...did you guys know if you spray deoderant on your toes your feet won't stink? It really works. Not if you're shoes already stink but try it (and continue)next time you get a new pair. :lol6
