Here's the faux-fur stuff that a PO put over the fiberglass. Any ideas how to get this junk off without ruining things?

I hope some other have some ideas. But it reminds me of a joke ...


Guy walks into a hardware store. The assistant says, "Can I help you Sir?"

The guy says, "I just need a quart of blue paint".

Assistant asks, "What is it for Sir, so I can recommend the best type of paint?"

Guy says, "Oh, just some all-purpose paint".

Assistant gets a quart of all-purpose blue paint and asks again, "Can you tell me what you are going to use it on Sir, so we can make sure you get the best results?"

Guy says, "Oh, all right. If you must know, it's to change the color of my Budgie!"

"What? You can't do that!" cried the Assistant, "You'll kill it!"

Guy says, "Alright, now you just mind your own business and give me the paint". Guy get's the paint and walks out of the store.

A few weeks later the Assistant sees the Guy walking down the street, so he runs out and says "Hey Mister, how's your Budgie?"

"It's dead" says the Guy.

"Well, I told you that the paint would kill it! says the Assistant.

"Oh, it wasn't the paint that killed it" said the Guy, "It was the blow-torch I used to get the other colour off!"

You gotta wonder?? Well, they made it there own. Could be worse. It could be pink. When it comes to glue, a heat gun ( actually I use Maggie's hair dryer when she's not looking) and a dull putty knife. Slow but sure. Raz

Heat gun... good idea! We can try that on an out-of-the-way spot.

I think I'll wait until The Dot has spent the night "camping" with the twins from next door!

Just don't let 'em feed it and you should be OK.

Fuzzy brown carpet is nice, but that sure was an unusual place to put some.

Oh MY!!
Well it sure looks like they just stuck it where ever the fiberglass was bare so it shouldnt be to bad getting it off - of course that depends on what they used to do it! Nothing serious hopefully. If they used something like 3M spray adhesive it may just peel off but you will end up with some residue on the fiberglass to deal with.

Good luck with it. Be sure to share the before and after photos.
