    One of the Quickest & Safest ways to remove Adhesive without Damaging your paint is with a 3-M Eraser Wheel.You can buy them at Most Auto Stores.

    If u use the eraser wheel, don't use any pressure. The wheel will do all the work. If u put any pressure, it could burn through the paint.

    WD-40 will also remove glue

    Be careful with that...It's used to remove tint off of taillights. I wouldn't let that get near my paint.

    Please don't put alcohol, wd-40, or other harsh chemicals on your paint. The best way to remove the glue is to use a heat gun and be really patient. Don't get it so hot it melts. After you get the big pieces off, use a 3m buffing wheel. As previously stated, don't use pressure with it, just let the wheel and your drill do the work. Again, patience is a must. I worked in a body shop for 3 years and saw a lot of paint ruined. If it's a factory paint job, it shouldn't be a problem though.
