I have an old Fusion and RY I'm stripping for repairs and the old covering is sticking to them something horrible. The film comes off but the color stays behind.

I've used old covering and good duck tape to remove stubborn covering in the past but that's not working this time.

Any ideas??

I got a wing from a friend when I rebuilt my Carden Edge. That covering came off a lot like yours did. I did a lot of wiping it with acetone (clear covering gone, just color and adhesive remaining) then scraping with a single edge razor blade. This was followed by a bunch of sanding. I finally got it to the point I could recover it and the old crap didn't bleed through.

Like I said I tried that, stink. I have not tried acetone because I don't want to smear the color into the wood. Using more covering and tape isn't taking the coloring off at all.

Ill try that but it'll be one hell of a pain. The fuse is mostly sheeting and not exactly flat after its hard life. I'll give it a shot, though.

Heat up the residue with an industrial heat gun and scrap it off with something flat. Then give it a sanding with 100 grit.
