    Hi,

    I did not know if to post this in the detailing or not?

    I have some new plates made up for my car, the ones on there now are stuck on with them adhesive foam pads. Any one got any ideas how to remove the old pads easily ready for new ones before i attempt it?

    I was thinking stanely blade and some white spirit? any good?

    Thanks

    Applying heat gently with a heat gun works for me...

    white spirit will remove any leftovers once you ve removed the majority of the pad
