Removing Emblem Double-Back Sticky Tape

What is the best way to remove the residue from the sticky back tape that body shops use to attach emblems and molding to your vehicle? It is that grey tape, and when removed, it still leaves a very sticky film.

I used a heat guy to remove the emblem and most of the glue. What chemicals can I now use that won't mess up the clear coat?

Thanks in Advance..

Ty

Most paint companies have a "Wax & Grease Remover". It is a weak solvent. A rag soaked with this and held on the glue for a bit should soften it, then I sometimes use a bondo spreader to get most of the glue off. Then a clean rag dampened with the W&G Rmv.

Ya know, I have tried the W&G remover on this before, but maybe I didn't soak it enough. I will give it another try and see if it will soften up some more.

Thanks

When I removed the badges from my truck, I used Goo gone and a few pieces of floss. Took a little bit of work, but got the badges off without a scratch.

I've always used wd-40 for any kind of glue, bug, or tar that gets stuck on my paint.

The easiest way without hurting the paint is using a stripe eraser.
There are about 8 companies that make them.
They look like an over grown "eraser" and they mount on drill, die grinder, angle grinder.
Any paint store would have a bunch to chose from.
