    I have began the insane process of removing the sound deadening tar from my interior. I am using a heat gun and a putty knife. How do I get the remaining layer of goop off so its clean metal? Any tips from the pros?

    i just left it, once u get into it ull notice that it is damn hard, and tehre are some parts that wont come off at all, so instead of worring to much just leave it. if u REALLY want it off,get it really hot, and use razor to get it off.

    Can't be much. I've read about tegs or hatches or something having like 15-20lbs, but I'm ony taking the rear half of my car's tar out. I want a metal lookin interior so I can paint it. Plus I like the noise in my cabbin believe it or not! Dry ice sounds like the way to go. Thanx

    Do it the hard way. Either you'll lost twenty pounds or the car will. Maybe both. :bo:
