Adhesive residue

Ok so i just ordered acoustic panels and im gunna use Auralex Foamtak Acoustic Foam Spray Adhesive to mount them onto my walls. Im worried that when i take off the acoustic panels the adhesive will ruin my walls and the panels, Does the adhesive leave any residue or ruin the walls when you remove the panels? If it does is there any way to get rid of it and fix the problem cuz my dad will beat my 17 year old butt if i mess up his walls.

I put some acoustic squares on a wall once with 1 T-Pin in the center of each square and it worked pretty good. When I took them down the holes in the wall were so small that you couldn't even see them! I got the T-Pins (I think that's what they're called) at Staples... cheap!

If it sticks to a wall, it's going to stay there when you take the stuff down. Sheetrock is only paper with a thin layer of paint. If the wall was painted with an enamel it might stand a chance. But be warned, just pining the panel might not allow them to function as designed. I use movable freestanding panels, no damage done. Happy wife.
