Finally got around to peeling stickers off body & windshield. Some gummy adhesive remains. Tips for removal would be appreciated. Don't want to fudge up my windshield or paint. THANKS!

I use Goo-Gone (not Goof-Off). Some others say they use WD-40

For painted surface: WD-40 and a fingernail. And Patience

For the windscreen: Soap and fingernail followed up with windscreen cleaner.

I used the stickers themselves to remove the leftover glue by just repeatedly sticking them to the residue. Takes some patience but gets the job done without chemicals or abrasives.

On a side note, I find it amusing how some of the stickers peel right off while others are slathered in glue.

Lighter fluid. Will not affect paint.
