Hey all, I'm in the process of painting my old case, and I had to remove some stickers. Unfortunatly all that sticker gunk refuses to move. I've had luck with the dremal on some other things, but I'm painting this section blue so I'm worried the dremal marks are going to show through (I tested it on some scrap metal, and in the right light you can see them. I've tried mineral oil, water, adhesive remover pads (pretty weak), can anyone think of anything? Thanks!

Starbuck - head over to your local canadin tire (if they're down there) or homehardware/depot/some other major hardwars store, and look for Goo Gone - this stuff worked liek a dream for my psu.

No we don't have any Canadian Tires down here, however I know I can get Goo Gone. I'll have to give it a whirl, thanks Tulatin!

How hard would it be to lightlly sand it off? This will also make for a great new surface ready to paint.

The Goo-Gone works the best. Trust me - it leaves NO traces, and sanding the stickers doesn't work - i've tried it. Long time no see raven -where ya been?

Just get some Varsol or other Paint Thiner.
Then wash the section with soapy water and you should be able to paint over it when dry.

Sorry, I forgot to reply! The only thing I had around was WD 40, and that worked like a charm! With little or no scrubbing it came off really easy, I highly reccommend it to all the cheap bastards out there. Thanks guys!

The only thing about wd40 is it leaves an oily residue that must be washed off, next time try some acetone (available at most hw stores and given time it will disolve almost anything, keep it away from plastic unless you arte fast) George
