just got my plates today, took off the temprary registration and now i got some sticker remains on my windshield, is there any way i can get this off? i know alcohol and acetone will do the job but will these chemicals discolor the glass?

on a different note, i was thinking about getting a dash cover or maybe get it carbon fibered or brished aluminum, im talking about the black plastic on top cuz it gets dust really easy and maybe a black leather dash cover would be nice, but would it effect the function of the daylight and heat sensors (two domes)? even if theres a cutout for them, it would cover soem of the base, no?

I've tried this before, for the exact same reason, and it worked quite nicely.
just take a razor blade and scrape it off. It comes off clean and easy. I would stay away from chemicals......we don't want to take a chance of touching our nice dash and hazing the crap out it. try it, let me know how it worked.

If you can leave black marks from the exit point of one turn, to the breaking point of the next, then, and only then do you have enough horsepower.

I use Goo Gone to remove sticker gunk, and it works pretty well. I don't know if it'll cause hazing though. I do know that Goo Gone has petroleum-based chemicals and citric acid (or something like that...it smells like some sort of citrus fruit).

thanks a lot for the quick responses, I'll try the razor blade since i don't get this problem often. I'll keep Goo Gone in my mind so when i do find myself needing to remove sticker gunk more often, i'll know what to get. thanks agian.

Yep - razor blades and goo gone - those are my tools too...

If those fail then I resort to Berryman Carburetor cleaner... Nasty stuff but it melts gunk/grime real well.
