How to remove baked on chewing gum from paint?



Hey guys,


I recently discovered a couple three inch long pieces of old gum baked onto the lower rear of the car, behind the rear tire. I tried some APC to no avail. I followed that with some "Goof Off" which did little to nothing to remove it.


What's the secret? It seems like clay would make a mess of the gum.

Dylan revealed a little secret to us at the recent vendors clinic. Try Brilliant Glaze. Get it on there a little heavy and let it sit for a while. There's something in the product that breaks down the sticky element. We used it on a tree sap spot and it worked pretty well.


Personally, I have used butter to break down tree sap or peanut butter to break down gum. Just let it sit on there and then carefully wipe it away.

I'll try some Brilliant Glaze and if that doesn't work, peanut butter.... if I bought the creamy, not the chunky...



The chunky would be equal to SSR and the creamy would be FMP.


The chunks of peanuts would be the diminishing abrasives.
