Post getting double stick tape off of paint

When I bought my car someone had disgraced it with a car badge in the shape of France. Sine I've removed it I still have some double stick foam tape left. Whats the best way of getting it off without damaging the paint under it.

Regards
Mark

i wouldn't go to the store before trying rubbing alcohol or wd 40 and a non abrasive rag- like a tee shirt.

Goo Gone always works for me- especially removing old stickers from shows, previous inspections, etc...

3M makes not sure of the part# but you can ask your paint store for a 3M glue buster and they will know what you are asking for and they work great

I second the 3M. Look for a red spray can that says General Purpose Adhesive Remover in your local parts store. Good stuff. Let it set for a couple minutes and reapply before trying to rub it off.
