I have some rubber tread on my boat that is old and cracked. I need to replace it but it is really glued down good. Anybody have an easy way to remove it so I can replace it?
Not sure if a solvent would harm the fiberglass.
Thank you

I would use a heat gun on the lowest setting to soften the adhesive enough to peel it off, then use Goo Gone to remove the residue.
