I know that they say that dry ice is the best option for removing the deadening itself, but what about the tar? Anyone done this before? Any tips?

I imagine that you would need some kind of solvent to wipe away the remaining tar. But it would have to be something that wouldn't eat the paint. Anyone know?

what about wax and grease remover that you wipe a car with prior to painting?? ?/ just a suggestion I am not sure how strong it it....

I am thinking that anything strong enough to remove the tar might eat the paint...

also you could try some bug and tar remover.. .

it works a little better if you let it soak on for a while. and alot of elbo grease..

why are you removing this anyway... . . i just chiseled it out in my race car in 4 spots to mount the cage but i really did not care about the floor.. is it for weight.... . .how much does all of it weigh..... I might take mine out. . . I am a weight Nazi.... . I dont eat before a race HAHAA

On that topic, probably the best investment for myself to accomplish this would be a treadmill. :p

Yea, I've pretty much tried all of the stuff that you all mentioned. Let me just say...this tar is no joke! I'm thinking of using "Airplane Remover" to get it off now. Yea, it'll eat the paint, but I don't mind. I have to keep my interior to stay in my class, so it'll just cover it up.

And yes...I'm removing it b/c of weight. I've heard numbers ranging from 20-40 lbs. of weight shaved from this stuff, although I think that 40 is just an "over-exaggerated ricer number". If I can get just 20 I'll be more than happy.
