Yep I did post it on a few of the Evo Facebook groups. I am getting the exterior ship shape before posting in on here & Pistonheads.

I have just finished! Basically more of the same, heat gun, scraper, tar remover, meths, Tcut and finally the electric polisher..

Really was worth the effort! The electric buffer is such a great tool as well, it took the paint from a dull cream, to a bright shiny white to match the rest of the roof. It's obviously not 100% as if it was never there sadly.. But I don't think anyone will notice without looking for it..

I always get scared of the electric buffer, just in case I make swirl marks or take the paint off.

You've done a cracking job there though 😂👍🏻

I know I was scared of taking too much paint off too.. But it's fine! You just don't press hard and it depends which attachment you use. Can always check the thickness with one of the gauges, I should probably get one of those too.

Haha you can call me Penelope if you prefer "Rob"

I am going back to a TT Supra I know it doesn't handle like an Evo, and I may never own a car that does, and is as much fun but I really do miss my Supra TT Aerotop..

Just as a suggestion. This may not be recommended or is.

Panel wipe cleaner. Like an IPA chemical. Some detailers use that.

Good luck on it though.

Edit. Appears it didn't load the second page and you done it. Worth a mention for anyone else then.

I did actually get some paint thinner on there which took the glue off nicely, but it was a mixture of that, meths, tcut, polish and elbow grease and 3 ice scrapers (kept melting them with the heat gun)
