Try paint thinner or mineral spirits they do a good job on cleaning roof tar off tools. An electric heat gun may also help.

Carlton, my fender undercoating was pretty solid, so we just sprayed a light coat over the old and happy with results. Don't recall the brand, but was in an aerosol can. It will be in the upper 20's F here by Sunday, but we are close to -30f tonite and -50ish with the wind chill. Crazy stuff. Keep warm

Subject: [Chrysler300] Removal of 55 year old undercoating

 

Hello from the very snowy and very cold Northwood’s of Wisconsin,

(and Eagle River, home of the World Championship Snowmobile Derby)

 

I am currently in the middle of the very unpleasant job of removing old and hard but very well attached old undercoating on my 300H. The bottom of the car is complete (sand blasted and painted although there was not much undercoating left) so it is only the inner and outer fenders (with thicker undercoating) that I need to clean of undercoating.  The fellow who will be painting is reluctant to try to sand blast it off so I am using PB Blaster, Liquid Wrench, and kerosene to soften and then scrap off the undercoating.    I’m working in about 50F temp in my garage so I could probably warm up (kerosene tube heater) the fenders further if that would help.  Or if there are stronger solvents that don’t evaporate too quickly, that would probably help too.

I’ll appreciate all suggestions.

Thanks,

Carlton Schroeder
