    Question Adhesive removal help

    Picked up some LS70's last night and they need some help. One of them looks fine, but the other has definitely seen better days. All pegs for the grill snapped off and he used some sort of adhesive to keep it on. Its kind of like the gunk used in car doors to keep the plastic lining on. It doesn't permanently dry and can be heated up to loosen up some.

    I've already scraped off most of the excess with a flat piece of plastic. What I need now is something to get the rest off. Is there some sort of chemical that can be used that won't damage the finish on the speaker in the process?

    Methyl hydrate might help.

    I like the idea of a product called Goof-Off!

    Like brgman above, I've used Goo Gone--soak liberally and it will be absorbed by the gooey mess, then wipe off. It may take a few treatments depending on the gunk factor.

    Of course it seems like our chemists above may also have good solutions (no pun intended).

    3M General Purpose Adhesive Remove is my chemical of choice, honestly never tried Goo Gone on anything, 3M just always melts everything so I stick with it. (pun intended)

    I used Goo Gone and it worked perfectly. I was just worried of stripping the color off the baffle.

    I also used goo gone on some speakers i bought that had tape residue on them. It did not harm the cabinets in any way and came right off.
