i have an old deck that i'm bringing back to life... thing is, i went completely sicker crazy with this board... so you know what's next... i'm peeling and picking most of the stickers off now... but... a lot of the adhesive material is staying on the board, not coming off with the sticker... does anyone know how to get this goo off without destroying the graphics and paint on the deck?

I've had pretty good luck with some stuff called "Goo Gone". Local Ace Hardware carries it. It's citrus based and doesn't seem to mess with cured paint or varnish. Takes off grip tape goo, too. The kids got sticker happy on the dining room table. Goo Gone removed the left over sticky stuff with no problem. Didn't mess up thetable either. As always, test it on a part of the deck where it'll be least noticeable.

Also try Ronson Lighter Fluid. Depending on what kind of adhesive it is, it can work amazingly! Goo Gone rocks too...

check a small area first when using Goo Gone and lighter fluid (I've used both). They will both probably pull up some of the paint graphics.

Check with an arts & crafts store, I think I found something there that was specifically for sticker residue. I think it's used to remove the residue from price labels.

WD-40 works good for adhesive removal too

I've also had good luck with WD-40 and more than likely it won't hurt the graphics.

You could also try Hoppes #8 gun solvent, I have de- stickered Geetars with it. It is designed to not damage varnish on gun stocks so I tried it.

Faux Maux,
Just a suggestion but I think that board would be extra sweet if it were set up with period correct wheels. Powell Cubic 3's would be sweet or something from '83-84 since the deck is from that period I think. Tank? Better yet, if you have pics of Ollie on the board check what he had on it. Good luck it's a keeper and worth your time for sure.
Good luck!

also, try heating up the stickers first. it softens the adhesive. this always works for me when removing griptape, it should work for stickers too and wont hurt the board or graphics.

100% pure naptha lighter fluid is the best. Goo gone has been known to f**k s**t up.

I was exactly in the same situation just yesterday. I pulled off grip tape and every bit of the adhesive stayed on the board. I tried acetone, citrus stuff, WD40, and nothing really cut through it. Someone told me to use 3M Adhesive and Tar Remover #3618. It was excellent! It just dissolved the adhesive into a "slush" and I used a plastic putty knife and scraped it off. It didn't hurt the finish on the deck either. I'm not sure I'd use it over the graphics on the bottom but if you ever need to get old grip tape gunk off it's the best I've found.

I figured I'd have a hard time finding it but I got it at Wal-Mart. It was in the auto parts area so I would assume you could find it. It comes in an aerosol can.

hey, thanks everyone for the input... certainly gives me more than one option!... i'm gonna work on it this weekend...

and alvadude7... i'd love to put a set of cubics, or III's, or mini-cubics on this board... thing is i don't have any... i watch ebay constantly, and have actually bid on a couple of sets... they usually go for more than i'm willing to spend... but i'm not gonna give up... thanks brah... and you're correct... this is the deck with the tank on it... the deck is a dark teal blue, and the graphics are grey and black... i bought it in about 19... 85 or so.. i wish i had gotten the neon green one, but this one stood out more... at the time i bought it everyone was puttin out the neon colors...

anyways... thanks again to everyone for all your ideas and comments... this forum is a great thing!
