Finally started thinking about cleaning my trim, so eventually I can put gaskets back in. Lol.

Ii started scraping this gunk with a razor blade, but that's no fun, and I'm going to do more harm than good.

Is there a better way to clean this sh*t.

I used 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner, a plastic scraper and a roll of paper towels on my 88 SS.
The cleaner softens the bond on the adhesive allowing the scraper to remove it. Be warned...it can be a bit of a mess but worth the effort.

Awesome, thank you. I'll definitely give it a try. Need to get my wife to steal me a couple plastic scrapers from work. Lol.
