Removing "sticker-gunk" from Halo shell?
 
I recently picked up a sweet Viking, and it came with a Halo B with 'stickaz' all over it. I tried removing them peacefully, but they proceeded to rip and shread and leave behind all that nasty gunk on the shell. I'd like to remove it, but I'm afraid a razor blade will scratch the plastic all to hill and back. Anyone have any experience with this, that can offer advice? I haven't had too much luck with rubbing alcohol to remove adhesive either, and I'm afraid that would make the plastic look opaque. I'd hate to have to buy new shells, this one is in fine shape...

"goo gone" should do the trick!

or any of those "orange cleaners"

I have used either to remove adhesives-albeit not on many plastics. . . .

The old reilable: WD40

It is a mild solvent. I've used it to remove sticker gunk many times.

I usually use 70% isopropyl alcohol for removing that kind of stuff. It works great on anodized metal and most plastics, but I'm not sure if it'll have any adverse affects on Halo shells. I'd try it on the neck or some other inconspicuous spot first. It's not going to melt it or anything, but it might make it hazy or cloudy.

I was afraid of the 'hazy clouding' factor. So, looks like Goo-Gone is a good alternative to isopropyl?

goo gone rules!

Goo gone works good. Accetone might work well , dont know. Peanut butter if left one it for an hour will work as well.

Ok, thanks, WD-40 or Goo-Gone will do the trick, it seems.

Now, anyone care to take a glance at my barrel anodizing thread?!
