Racing Stripe Removal / Hard Glue

Hi all,
I recently bought an 08 GT. The previous owner put Racing Stripes on the car & did a real hack job at it. Splices, Wrinkles & Bubbles in the stripes so I removed them. I used a Heat Gun to remove the stripes which came off fairly easy in about an hours time.
But it left a Hard Glue Residue behind that I'm having a lot of trouble getting off. I've used Goo Gone, Goof Off, WD40, Rubbing alcohol & 3-M Adhesive Remover. It takes off a little bit but will not break down the hardened glue to remove it. I've also tried Maguire's Ultimate Compound with a D/A Buffer. That just made the whiteness go away. It left the Glue behind & made it shiny.
Anyone know how to get this Hard Glue to break down & turn gummy so I can get it off. I've been trying everyday for a week now & haven't found a solution short of getting the car repainted.
I'm posting 3 pics below so you can see exactly what I'm dealing with. Any suggestions are appreciated. THANKS !!!!!

I think I would go to a couple different paint shops and get their opinion

If its an actual residue left on the paint you just gotta keep using non paint damaging products to get it off. Might have to go at it a few times with a buffer.

What type of pad did you use with the DA? For really cutting it down i would go with a microfiber cutting pad. They do the work of a rotary buffer without the damaging heat of one.

Medium strength laquer thinner, Try it in the door jamb first. I used it to take off dried adheisive that was on the clear coat. Nothing else would work and was told to try it and it works. Goof-off may work, it's simiar to laquar thinner and comes in a smaller container but more expensive.

Go to the local sign shop and buy a bottle of spray on liquid vinyl remover. I used it and the vinyl pulled off easily. Go slowly and keep the vinyl as close to the body as you can while you pull it. I did mine in the winter in the garage but I think it would have been eve easier when warm.
