im going to take off my rub strips on my 2001 C and went to halfords to try to get myself a toffee wheel,

ended up coming back with a "sanding and polishing kit" is like a toffee wheel in the sense that its a drill attachment, and has a

"lambswool polishing bonnet" (5")

do people think this will work? (it is white in colour just looks like cotton tbh!"

whats the best way to removed the strips? just get a credit card behind it to start it off and then just slowly pull off or is there a much safer way? i remember taking the bump strips off my cavalier and it deided to take a couple of big patches of paint with them, and with our corsa being fairly new i dont want to be doing the same as it was ment to be a cheap easy mod but turned out to cost me a fortune in having 4 doors re-sprayed lol!

ive just finally managed to get mine off. i used some white spirits at first witht eh old credit card method and eventually went to using autoglym tar remover. in the end i would say that its a pain in the arse no matter wot way u do it and wouldnt do it again lol!! I must say though..the end result looks great all i need to do now is get it washed and polished!!

Thanks for al the posters that have posted many times on how to do this as it helped me alot!!
