1970 c10 1/2 ton.
I’m working on my doors and have been scraping off the factory “sound deadening” material that looks like junk bed liner from the inside. It started, at first, coming off in chunks with my scraper but now I’ve reached the stuff that still sticks and I can’t scrape it off.

What is your best way to remove this junk?

Heat and scrape? Time consuming...I have lots of time.😃
Wire wheel? Hard to reach in? I hate contorting...😡
Chemical peel?🤪

Whatcha think?

I'm familiar with earlier models - is this that nasty tar-like stuff? I pre-soaked the inside of the door for a couple of days with WD40, then used a heat gun and putty knife. It released pretty quick once the WD40 penetrated under it. Stubborn spots required additional applications. Obviously don't get the metal so hot that you warp it. Clean up the oily residue with lacquer thinner.

Junk? Its been on there quite a few years. If its "hidden" why not leave it and put what ever you use over it to...
Oh, I know, "do it once and do it right".....right?

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

If you cannot scrape it off, you likely will not have rust issues under it. Get off what you can and foe ged about it.

I’ve thought about leaving it, but as Alvin said....OCD much? I agree with you all about how it has lasted 48 years, it should be ok, but if “I’ve come this far may as well go all the way...”
Perhaps I’ll see the light once I’ve fought for too long trying to remove it. 😉 Thanks fellas.
