I'm getting to the point that I want to start working on my roof areas and seems smart for me to get the windshield adhesive cleaned off before I start sanding. Would a surface prep wax and oil remover like PrepSol liquify this stuff? Or should I use lacquer thinner? These were the two options I've considered. If possible I'd also like it to work on rubberized undercoating that the PO sprayed in my trunk areas. What solvent works the best?

yes, prepsolv or a good solvent will remove the stuff. lacqyer thinner may do it quicker though. as long as you don't care about the paint, just use lacquer thinner.

try lacquer thinner on the undercoating, but if that doesn't work, gasoline should get it off.

FIRE! hehehehe - Solvents are the best. But nothing can beat free elbowgrease and a puttyknife! Simple Green Might work I use it exclusively on the inner fenders of my car, and it cuts through lots given enough time.

I used CRC dialectric cleaner and it worked pretty well, especialy on the trim. Good luck!

I posted a similar question last week and if you have this gook on your window moulding midlife suggested using a penny with lacquer or paint thinner. he said the copper penny is softer than the stainless moulding and wont scratch it. I havent done it yet but it sounds very feasible. good luck.
