    Vinyl Eraser And Arbor

    Product Review (submitted on April 13, 2013):

    I bought an 86 Ford Ranger pickup, and it had once had a chrome strip dividing the two colors. The chrome strip was long gone, but the glue wass still there. I saw one of these work one time, and ordered two to clean off the glue residue. The truck had sat outside for years, and the adhesive had turned hard, and the erasers wouldn't touch it, so I cut a 45 degree angle on a scrap of Oak 1x2, and used it like a chisel to remove the top surface of the adhesive, and then the erasers worked to remove the last bit. After a wet coat of Goo-Gone, to soften the remaining adhesive, the erasers worked as advertised. I'm sure if the adhesive was fresher, the job would go easier, but the stuff has been there for nearly 40 years, so a bit of innovation was required. Once cleaned, a 1" tape stripe will divide the colors nicely.
