a little job this evening that i had been putting off for a while. removing some stickers from the polycarb side windows.

 

and they always leave some sticky residue and they had been on for about 21 years.

basically just press remove repeat until gone. you will need to change the bit of tape a few times. it is just using a sticky thing to pull the sticky stuff off. did not want to use any solvent for many reasons. the rubbing and possible more scratches ..

Jeez - that must be uncomfortable when it’s reading in the car’s gauge! Bet that never happened in Yorkshire!
