3m adhesive remover and elbow greese. Use the razor blade first to remove the bulk

Ditto on the remover made for removing the stuff. 5200 is tough.

Good luck hope you can fix gelcoat. I can't ever get that stuff off without messing something up. Use the 4200 if you think your going to take it apart again.

West Marine has a small spray bottle of adhesive remover...can't remember the name but it's a white bottle with red top, about $10 bucks...let it soak a bit...
