    :( !!

    Okay so tonight i went to a show in Houston (where i live) to see a couple of bands play. No harm done, the place is in kind of a raunchy area but i always go. When we got there there were not very many parking spots considienrg you have to park on the street. I was kind of hesitant about where i parked but i figured no big deal since i always park around there. WELL when i got back to my car it was in good shape > BUT! the car infront of me (mustang gt) had its window smashed in. PHEWWWW! Dodged that one I felt really bad for him but im so glad it wasnt me. So i was relived BUT when i got back my girlfriend was like "You have som gum on your butt" and sure enough there was a big thing of gum stuck on my ass. So i figured some had to be on the seat, but maybe just maybe not! Butwhen i got there, there was a big thing of gum on the seat !!!!!!! So now its all ruined. I got some goo away from her and it helped a little but not completley. ANyone have any suggestions? new seat ?

    there should be some chemical somewhere that can help you get it out instead of having to get a whole new seat I would think

    Try an ice cube. It will freeze the gum and you should be able to peel it off. Of course, it will also get the seat wet.

    Call a car detailing shop. It probably won't cost too much to have it taken care of.

    Did you leave your window open when you parked?

    Sure but then you've got peanut oil all over your seat. Out of the kettle and into the coals...

    gum

    WD-40 will get gum out, no problem, It may leave a grease stain so use some mild soap and water after the WD-40
