      the film is fixed inside. i check it thrice..

      i used petrol to remove the gum. it took me 4 long hours to remove the sticker and the gum.

      il take it to the sticker shop tomo and get it checked with him.

      but the pic after removing the sticker looks good. I mean it looks good with just the imprint.

      Films are always stuck from inside. And the imprint cannot be on the film. I can think of only one thing - that the film under the sticker did not fade as much as the rest of the film exposed to sunlight. But that again is highly improbable.

      On the original topic itself, thanks for all your tips and suggestions. For now, I'm trying out the small little trick that I mentioned on the post. It seems to be working with the security

      Bumping up an old thread.
      Could someone tell how to remove the sticker and its stains on a metallic surface of the car?
      What materials can be used to clean the sticky surface?

      I usually use Kerosene. Or Diesel. Surgical Spirit works as well. Just wash with shampoo as soon as you are done to avoid too much damage to paint and polish.

      Ps. I use a ladies perfume for the really bad "stains". The ladies in the house do not like that bit at all, obviously.

      Thanks tadukuttan. But Surgical spirit is too volatile and dries off very fast. Might not be easy to work if it is on large area. Also how it treats plastic...

      Not sure it harms plastic, never seen too much damage till now. But I have a feeling that might dissolve printed stuff on plastic switches etc. But the "tea rose" I was talking about earlier can take out the print in a matter of seconds. Probably same effect as nail polish remover as mentioned by Dinesh Sachdev

      I remember there used to be an Amway product called C-Spray. blue in color. window film installers used it to remove residual adhesive left by a sheet of film when they wanted to remove it and apply new film. just speay it on, leave it for 5 minutes and then wipe off all the adhesive which gets emulsified. good stuff.
