Badge adhesive removal

Any tips to remove old badge adhesive?

DA machine did a nice job on the paint, but the old badges got loose.

I believe Jiff will remove that with no harm to the paint, but it will require considerable rubbing and therefore finger blisters. I, to my amazement, found Jiff (straight, no water) was able to successfully remove the "spoiler" glue after I removed it.

Oh and my fingers have now recovered

Thanks Pete. Looking up Jiff in the US. Don't mind elbow grease, just trying to avoid paint damage.

Goo Gone makes a paint-safe product specifically for cars, though I think it's pretty much the same as their regular stuff.

Goo Gone for Cars - Automotive Spray Gel | Goo Gone

This'll remove adhesive, but you'll likely need to let it sit a while.

I couldn't find the automotive product in the store and wanted to move on last week, so I bought the regular goo gone.

No paint damage to report, but the product was not effectively removing whatever the adhesive was. It'll get covered with the new badge, so I saw no need to over do it.

Just though I'd report back.

3M General Purpose Adhesive Remover is the best product we have found that works above all other products. Used in detail shops. Do not rub hard, let product soak in for a bit. Gentle rubbing should get it off. Might take more than one application.
