Ice scraper for a very tiny car?

Just an FYI for those who don't know-- acetone is an extremely hot solvent that WILL harm the gelcoat of your trailer, as well as most surfaces it touches. It is NOT the same as 'nail polish remover with perfumes'. While nail polish remover may contain a low percentage of acetone, it is not acetone. There is a common group of very hot solvents we used to use when I worked in the paint industry, each for cutting a particular coating-- xylene, toluene, acetone and lacquer thinner. Never use these on a finished surface unless you want it damaged.

Gm has a spray cleaner much like spray 9 that seems to work well on the residue left from the Butle tape . Doesn't seem to harm the gel coat .

Glenn, apparently no prize, but you did guess right. Dennis confirmed it for me at the rally.
