      Removing Styrofoam residue from rolling stock roofs

      I have A streamliner that has Styrofoam residue on the roof from being stored in the box. Has anyone removed this from the paint without damaging it. Don't really want to repaint the roof.... Thanks!!... Travis

      I've used a "green weenie," with success.  Just be careful, don't press too hard.

       

      Then I learned to use plastic bags to replace the original plastic sleeve.

      I'd try regular tape (blue, scotch, w.h.y.) - should bring it off without hurting the paint.

       

      As an aside, I read that the manufacturers pack their coaches (etc.) in plastic bags as styrofoam will scratch the paint.  I am getting fastidious about keeping the plastic or similar when storing them in the original styrofoam.
