Some people use a heat gun to soften the glue.
Acetone works too.

Are you painting underneath where the rubbing strake goes?

Well...

I will be putting on a new rubstrake over the old one. What will happen to tube seals? I will be painting 100% of the tubes that are visible.

You mean the tube seam is behind the strake?

Yes, will the heat not adversely affect the structural integrity of the seams?
