Sorry to revive an old thread from the dead but how exactly did you remove the glue from the front spray dec and all the glue residue left behind? im looking at partaking in a very similar project and there seems tobe alot more of the spraydeck seariders for sale than the military spec(what i would like to build) for sale.

The glue was softened using cellulose thinners then rubbed with a green scouring pad.

Be careful. Do not be too aggressive. Acetone will do the same thing but evaporates a lot quicker than the thinners.

They never did on mine, if you are worried you can test it on the spray dodger.

I used an absorbent rag and dabbed it on the glue, it took time but its better that than rushing it and doing damage.
