    1999 Pathfinder 17T. Removed the carpet inside the rod holder areas below gunnel and was wondering if anyone had removed the glue that looks to have been applied with a caulking gun. The glue is tan in color. Thought about using heat gun but did not want to mess up gelcoat or fiberglass. :-?

    Liquid Nails, that stuff is cheap and used everywhere.
    Heat to 140 degrees F to ease scraping. Polyester resin/fiberglass heat range is -20 to +200 F

    Thats what I was thinking too Liguid Nails. My friend softened it with chemicals scraped with knife and will buff off residual. Thanks Brett we will try heat next time :)
