Goobegone takes the paint off. Use a hair dryer or heat gun.

Tiatool definitely has the cheapest option that works.

You want it to come off perfectly and spend a little more?
Leave it out in the sun/use a hairdryer.
Go to Oreilly and pick up 3M adhesive removal.
It will come off so easy, and its paint friendly. Used it on BRAND NEW firetrucks.

Goo gone works, but whatever it is based off is greasy and messy to clean up.
Whatever part of the aerosol doesn't evaporate, wipes off with one full swipe.

Paid advertisement?




Ive used a hairdryer to help loosen the glue then peel and follow up with goo gone with success.

Just test the goo gone in an incospicuous spot first.

And mine sounded like a paid advertisement???

I think OP gets the point, heat and some type of anti-adhesive will help the process.
