Gunk on drybox lid - how to remove?

Just peeled off my adhesive foam pad from my dry box lid. almost all of it came off but the adhesive/gunky goo is still there. Aside from napalm or agent orange what do you guys recommend I use to get it off?

Angle grinder and 80 grit flap wheel. Did I mention you should be gentle.

I've used mineral spirits, let it soak in. Scrape up what has softened, then apply more, and repeat.

Just throw it away...the drybox that is. Keep the wife.
One can also douse it with gas and set it on fire....the drybox....that is....Not the wife. Goo gone is tolulene and xylol...nasty shit, gos to your liver and delivers you for doing most anything. good for graffiti removal as well
