Thanks for the idea, but I had read to avoid heating carbon as it can cause the layers to separate. These 2k paints have 2 separate areas inside the can to prevent the hardener and paint from mixing before you puncture through them to start painting. If this is more similar to your current issue, try taking a razor blade and cutting along the edge of the tape to break the paint there. I ended up using a razor blade on a shallow angle to carefully cut the tape and residue off. This worked well and I also used the razor blade on some paint drips the had been slopped on it from people painting around it over its life. You should have pretty good access to the rear of the rotor to get decent coverage back there as well. For instance, if you plan on wearing your system for a week and then get it re-bonded, then you should go for a tape that offers 2-4 weeks bonding time.
Warm water and a gentle hand is your best bet, then. You just need to experiment more to find the attachment and maintenance procedures that work best for you. However, if you finally can find the best way for you to apply your hair system, it can help you a great deal. It would look great. I’m lucky. My cabinet is in great condition. I would definitely research before trying, but I’m wondering if a blow dryer to heat up the residue will help in the removal process. Also be sure not to use any moisturizer or lotions on your scalp as this will also cause your scalp to become very oily. When you do decide to use tape to mask an area, limit yourself to one edge being pressed down. You should ideally pull the tape off before the paint fully cures: if the paint has cured over the tape, you risk either pulling off the paint with it or the tape being painted on and resistant to its removal. I plan on letting the paint fully cure for the next couple weeks before I apply industrial grade ceramic over them to allow for easier cleaning and maintenance. I worked on it over a couple of days and was pleased with the result.
My cat got stuck in a fly trap once and I had to give her oil treatments and baths for a few days. I have used these on a few bikes- they are cheap but have been perfectly fine. Allow the oil to remain on your hair for a few minutes. Also, don’t keep the hair system attached for more than 2 weeks. Also, when you take off your hair replacement system for cleaning and find that the adhesive residue is mainly yellow, that is also a sign. Also, there are anti-perspirant products on the market that can reduce the production of oil and sweat from your scalp thus making the bond last longer. You can treat the rust and dress it up with new housing, hoods, saddle, tires, and bar tape. Once you chased down all the rust and are back to bare steel or converted rust, what’s the next step? If I took off all the rust it’d have more bald spots than I do. For oily skin, don’t use products that will dry out your skin such as products high in alcohol or citrus-based products, as your body will produce more oil to make up for it.
I did a little research and found that some people had success with isopropyl alcohol or Goof Off. I tried “Opps We Goofed” with some success. I found that the tape had somehow bubbled up and a small channel was leaking air. UPDATE I was able to remove most of the residue using the sticky side of small strips of Gorilla tape and pulling up quickly. Brush through your hair with a fine-toothed comb to remove the tape residue. Apply olive oil to your hair, where the tape residue is stuck. Sticky tape leaves an adhesive residue in your hair, if it gets stuck. How to remove tubeless tape residue on carbon rim? I have a new set of ENVE carbon wheels that I’m trying to set up tubeless. Some dislike ‘new’ tech such as cartridge BBs, but they have been around for decades. Cartridge bottom brackets are easy to install and remove(that driveside of old cup n cone BBs can be brutal!). Shampoo your hair to remove the olive oil and the last of the tape residue.
Wipe the remaining olive oil off your hair with a washcloth, so you can see how much residue is left. Walker has a very good Bond Breaker Shampoo and it can remove any excess oil and adhesive residue from the last attachment and it will not dry your skin out either. The scalp protector will create a barrier between your scalp and the adhesive, so it will prevent oil from breaking the bond down too quickly. Before the attachment, you need to apply a layer of scalp protector onto your scalp. We recommend keeping your scalp as cool and dry as possible when you attach the hair system. Coat your hair with the oil to loosen the sticky adhesive. If so, you could give it an acid bath, clear coat the bare spots, and spray the inside with boeshield. This is the inside of the door. I cleaned the inside with Mr Clean as well.
