I was in the middle of prearing my Hurricane for some replacement stickering this afternoon when something I can't explain happened. No, it didn't fly away - after a little goo-gone on the stickers and a dip in the soapy water, I couldn't help but notice the plastic was turning white as it air dried!
I can scratch off the white 'film', but it seems like it's all over the place and I would really like to know what did this so I don't do it to another vehicle.
Does anyone know how to clean off the white film now? I don't want to scratch the whole vehicle down to panel lines and gratings...
Thanks in advance,
G.I. Joe fans are the kind of people who demand a steak dinner but will only pay for macaroni and cheese.

After using goo gone I found out the same thing. So I used a Q-tip with goo gone to rub off the glue, then water on the other tip to quickly wipe it away. Then I gave the piece a more thorough wipe with just a wet, soapy rag.
Hope this helps.
Yes, I have a Trade List....

Finish cleaning all the sticker residue off, then try to polish and buff with some Novus plastic polish #2. That should remove the white stuff and make the plastic nice and shiny like new.
