Any recommendations for wing walk material? I have searched the archives and a few recommended the clear from ACS. How’s the durability of the
clear? Any other recommendations?

I think they're all durable, but I've had people buy the clear who've
not been completely happy in the long run, mainly because it can
yellow and it gets dirty and looks bad then. So it's more common to
go black.
But, if someone else has a different reply, please add it. Mine is
not first hand but second hand.

I like the black because in addition to not yellowing it gives people a clear image of where it is okay to step.

I have the vans black wing walk installed. It’s been 6 years and still looks new. It comes with the cutouts for the screws

I did the test - black on one side, clear on the other! They both work, have been durable, but, as Tim said, the clear is near impossible to clean. I’d suggest the black.

This is relevant to me as I need to replace the wing walk during the inspection this year. Mine is peeling off (maybe because my airplane is so fast?!? ha)

Any experience with the paint on kind?

What is the best solvent to remove the old wing walk / adhesive without paint damage?

I removed some in the fall and just used a heat gun to heat it gently,
and then it peeled up without any paint issues.  But it would be
easily possible to pull paint off rivet heads if they're covered.
That said, as long as you're reapplying, you can always paint
the rivet heads and they should stay buried.  Peel towards
the center from all edges first, and that should help ensure
no paint issues.

If it is the self-adhesive variety, I would recommend gentle use of a heat gun....as I see Tim just suggested.
I would recommend against the brushed-on variety. I've never seen any hand-applied wing walk that looked right.
I'm not sure how paint shops put it on, but they generally do a good job.
