    Default removing glue from tubs. Do I really need to take it all off?

    Title kinda says most of it. I have been at this here and there for 2 days. I don't have time to really take all of it off. There is still a thin layer in spots but all the chunks are gone. Is it possible to just reapply another very thing layer and mount the tire? I tried goof off and now am using acetone. The acetone seems to be working better.

    you not only do not need to take it all off, you don't want it all off. if the rim is not carbon, the best way to remove glue is to put a 2 inch wire wheel on the end of a drill. the wheel will quickly gum up with glue and you'll melt off the rest. you'll have to stop from time to time to remove excess glue from the wheel. It should take 5-10 minutes per wheel. Carbon is a different story.

    I'll leave light layers on my rim. I'll peel away chunks if they happen ... but light layers are ok. I've also read that if you are changing brands of glue, removing is recommended.
