Lacquer thinner takes it right off. Acetone works too, but evaporates faster, so the lacquer thinner is better. Paint thinner is way too slow. Just dampen the corner of a paper towel, and the adhesive will disolve and wipe away in a couple of tries. Just keep using a clean piece of towel to prevent smearing the dissolved adhesive back on the covering. Neither solvents hurt the Orocover, but Don't get it on the edges, as it can disolve and loosen the covering adhesive along the edges. Also, when removing the tape, pull it straight back on itself and not straight up, or it'll stretch the covering, and pull it loose from the balsa. I wouldn't leave the tape on, because it can turn into a gummy, dirty mess in the sun. I've Never seen such gummy tape.
