Default is Goo Gone safe for Carbon hood?

i have a seibon carbon hood.. and the previous owner had stickers on them... i took them off.. the decals left that achieve stuff... u know what i mean...

i tried rubbing it off with carwash stuff... and soap/water.. still it did VERY little...

I've never used the goo gone, but I have used a decal and sticker spray on some others cars. Not on a carbon fiber hood, but I wouldn't think it would hurt it. I was worried the spray would hurt the paint before I tried it, but a friend of mine said he'ddone it numerous times. It worked unbelievably. Try a tiny spot and wash it off and then let it dry. There should be no discoloration.....

Try messaging the guy at Detailer's Domain. He's probably dealt with this before. How about a mix of vinegar and water? Give one of the local bodyshops a call and ask them what they would do.....

I've used goo gone on just regular paint before and nothing happened. I would assume since most hoods are clear coated like a cars paint, it should be okay as long as you wash that spot after using the goo gone...

Haha, nice! Yeah, we actually have a good amount in the area...last big meet we had, I'd say there were at least 10+ or so STi's that showed up and another 10-15 Subies...what about in your neck of the woods??

No, I feel like an alien around here in Statesboro. Quite a few of the good 'ol boys look at me like I'm E.T. stepping off the flying saucer..........It is so much fun obliterating all of the good ol' boy trucks with 350's in them. Heck, I dominate everything around here actually. Not much to be said for that though..........

Goo Gone (along with many other solvents) on a polyester resin or even epoxy resin will net you bad results. Yes, you probably have a clear coat on your hood... I wouldn't risk it.

Then again I wouldn't have a 'carbon fiber' hood anyway.

Goo gone is a citric acid based cleaner...If you squeezed an orange on your hood would it melt? I doubt it. It will be fine.
