WD40 and a soft towel? Maybe?

Re: sticker on paint

The easiest way will probably be to heat it up either with the sun or a hair dryer.

Whatever residue is left you can get off with a clay bar fairly easily.

Re: sticker on paint

heat it up (but don't heat the paint to much or it can mess it up) and try to slowly peal it off

Re: sticker on paint

Hair dryer on low,
heat the area (try not getting the paint)
Then start peeling off
whatever adhesive is still left put some goo gone over the area
if theres still stuff left on it last resort use a claybar

BTW what a bunch of dicks

Re: sticker on paint

Use a razor blade very carefully to slowly remove it. Then wax the area to remove the left over sticky residue.

Re: sticker on paint

man if you really need to use a razor my best advice on that is to tape the edges of the razer cause if you slip the wrong way those edges will bring up that paint up with the quickness

Re: sticker on paint

i would not let a razor blade near my car. you asking for a nice scratch in your paint. try diluted solvent. soak it pretty good and then slowly pull at the edges. and if that doesn't work, a pressure washer sprayed at the edges would probably do the trick. just don't get too close to the paint for too long in one spot. if the pressure is hard enough, that can lift the paint as well.

Re: sticker on paint

Gas will remove sticky stuff. Only use it as a last option.
