The glue of tapes, including gaffer, are usually easily removed with turps.... unless the glue has hardened sand dried. Even then, turps can still be used by wrapping the dried glue with strips of cloth soaked in turps and allowing to soak for several hours. Some gentle scraping may be required.

Another vote for Double D eucalyptus oil. Dearer than turps or petrol but smells a whole lot better.
At home and at ease on a track that I know not and
restless and lost on a track that I know. HL.

See link above.

I descovered this when I moved to the USA. Now available in Australia but I had not heard of it before. I was suspicious at first but everyone here answers the same when you ask for a remover.

Make sure you use gloves however as it also removes the oil from your skin as well as everything else.

Cobber also if you are taping things to the bull bar try using airconditioning duct tape. It is strong and comes off easier and does not dry out the glue as quick at gaffer tape.

Gaffer tape in the US is called Duck ( as in quack quack) tape.

Graham,

Gaffer tape originated in the US and is called "Gaffer tape" as it is used by Gaffers (electricians) in the film industry. It is a fabric reinforced adhesive tape used for attaching lights etc to supports rather than electrical insulation. So Gaffer tape in the US is called just that.... Gaffer tape.

"Duct" (not Duck) tape is a PVC tape designed principally to connect and seal air-conditioning ductwork but often adapted to other uses.

Cheers
Allan
