In Singapore, you can get a $1,000 fine for chewing gum in a public place. This is not because the government has anything against gum chewing as such, but rather reflects their concern for the pollutant effect discarded gum has on sidewalks and public places generally, in a city that goes all out to protect its cleanliness.

Of course, chewing gum pollution is not a problem that is unique to Singapore. Traveling at home and abroad, whether by train, sea or ferry, chewing gum soiling on carpets and hard-surface walkways is a constant reminder of the degrading effect that gum has spread in our environment.

The Internet as an information medium has the potential to relate both useful and useless information to millions of people with relative ease. For every informative website you will find a hundred misguided and often misleading examples with little or no practical benefits.

Our site will give you an invaluable insight into a productive method of removing chewing gum from many surfaces. This technique will save you time and money by effectively solving a major cleaning problem.

Best Regards

Freeze it by rubbing some ice on it, then chip it off.

Solvent would take it off.

You can find them at your local detailing supply store, paint store......etc.

There are different grade of solvent, just get something that are not too strong that would hurt your wheel finish.

I used a pink wax kerosene solution that Thien got from the gangsters at a car show, maybe it was a Hot Import Nights thing.

Anyway, that stuff not only leaves your car shiny smooth, but it also helps grease away gummy.

Gangster juice, i think. It's a pink colored wax in a clear bottle, and from what I've been told, it isn't sold in any store, but only at certain trade shows and swap meets around compton. It's the best and most versatile product I've ever own3d.

I can give you instructions on how to use it on your girl, but I already have 23 warning points, and it wouldn't be worth spending my remaining 2 yet.

For more information, I would PM G-Force.

Love,

you mean enemenies.


Stingray got my ankle last summer, and believe me, peeing on it is the last treatment you'd want for it. Hot water, as hot as you can stand, was the best treatment....and lots of alcohol, because I tell you this my friend, I have never experienced a pain greater than being whipped by a stingray's tail.

1,000 times worse than when i broke my shoulder. I **** you not. And, there is a scar on my ankle to this day.


As far as the gum goes, go buy a new tire.

Thumbs up




Don't knock this stuff. It's really good for $10 a bottle at the Del Mar Fair. I use it on my Minivan that sits outside. It doesn't leave swirl marks, or dust, after waxing.

I actually had to use it on my Subaru one time, because I had nothing else...wasn't the best shine. But this **** brings older paint back to life.

No the applicator doesn't match the color of the paint when you wax it.

thank you all for the advise.
i tried yelling one more time, but this time i also flipped the bird for a little added kick. still didn't work. goo gone looks like teh win.

i'll keep you all updated as i'm sure that your week will not be worth living if you don't ever find out what happened.



p.s. the pee on the stingray thing would only work on a late 60's early 70's corvette, but thanks anyhow
