Goof off or goo gone will work as well can be bought in most wal-marts or hardware stores.

Re: how to remove vinyl lettering residue

Thanks, both goof off and goo gone didn't work very well. What type of tool do you use with the wheel? It has about a 5/16" thread on it

Re: how to remove vinyl lettering residue

Bump, whats the best tool to use these on, it has a stud on it with 5/16's x24, I tried my da but it no longer works and I'd think dual action wouldn't be good, plus they want you to keep rpms under 4g.
