I read other posts and it scared me off the job as I had no idea what people were on about! Can anyone explain to me in terms I understand what it is I need to do? My barrus manual tells me to top u

  8. Hi all Title says it all really, I need to remove the tape tramlines off my boat. They won't scrape off, so I thought either heat gun or chemical. Not sure how hot the gun gets as don't want burning paint. Any thoughts?
