    Worst part about changing mats, goo off pro strength helps a lot but still lots of scrubbing with razor blade.

    They make plastic razor blades which will not scratch the paint so easy. I cannot remember where I got them last.

    I used carb cleaner on a cloth rag..wearing rubber gloves...worked pretty well on the GPR. no paint came off...not sure if the white on a gpr is paint. was a really messy paint in the ass to do.

    Get the floor glue remover from Lowes. It's in the flooring section. Pour it on, let it set a few, and it softens the glue. Remove gently with a razor blade.

    Amazon "wizzy wheel" its the real deal, it'll pull the whole matt and the glue off at the same time. Ill never do a set of matts again without it.

    This is the worst job ever , a plastic scraper so you don't damage paint or the surface and a good tar and glue remover to get the residue off, for anything really stubborn I used petrol . Oh and patience ... lots of it
