    I agree with dgapilot. I worked in the aircraft interior business for 10 years. Sometimes it takes more money in time and chemicals than to start out with new. Old yellow glue is the worst. Just my two cents.

    when Brian (Steve's Aircraft) did my recover, when he got to the floor pans, he said it would take less time to make new vs
    try and clean up the old ones. They had glue on them that I could never get off when I was sniffing MEK.

    Truth... whacked out a new set in less than an hour... also fixed a bunch of issues at the same time doing it... sprayed the back side of the floors with spray on bed liner to keep them from rattling too much...

    Yep. This is 100% what I have discovered too. At this point I basically have knocked off the loose stuff and called it a day. New pans might not be a bad idea though.

    thanks for the info!
