Oi . I have a nicely painted custom tank . Some bozo left masking tape on a section that has gold leaf on it . I've soaked it in distilled water and the top of the tape came off but the dried up sticky bit remains . I don't want to damage the tank or the gold leaf so any ideas on how to remove it ?

Has the leaf got 2pc clear on it ?
If it has prep sol will do, If it has'nt you will find it hard, try using another bit of masking tape to try to dab off the glue.
Glasurit makes a prep wash that is for water borne paints and it dose'nt attack
solvent base coats maybe that is worth a try.
go easy and good luck

Nah Ken . The tape has been on there for donkey's ages by the looks . I have Prep Sol but I'm paranoid it will lift it .

I removed a bunch of stickers off a old tank with very little clear left on it. Nothing paint wise came off on the rag.

I'd just be super careful...and PATIENT with the process...(don't slobber it all over the leaf work)...and you autta be just fine.

Wrap a rag around a popsicle stick or the tip of a ruler, get this damp (not wet) with the Prep-Sol, and go at it from ABOVE the leafing.
