    My 2004 P71 came completely littered graphics and other insignias. That eraser wheel was my saving grace...

    Does it take the adhesive off as well or should I buy another bottle of goo gone?

    It depends. I could tell which decals where on longer than others because some of the sticky residue just got smeared around and I had to wipe it down after the eraser wheel had done all it could. Also, the decals on the plastic bumper cover seemed to come off a lot easier than the decals on the metal doors, quarter panels and front fenders.

    Ah that's what it is called - I have been looking for these. I saw a youtube video where a guy talked about using one of these, he called it a caramel wheel. Google for caramel wheel, and you get just about everything except that guy up there. Thanks so much!

    No prob. They're like $40 if you go to the auto parts store. A bit pricey IMO, but worth the money. I'm sure they're cheaper online.

    Now that I know 3M makes them and what they are called, I'll see what Amazon can do for me ;)

    Laquer Thinner works way better than goo gone. Just don't scrub at one spot for a long period of time. Done this for years.

    I use it for everything!

    I have one of their 1/2 inch Cordless Impact Guns and Circular Saw also that shares the same battery size.
