Wifes hairdrier to start with...as it wont damage the paint but will soften the glue....after that Brake cleaner or WD40 will remove glue residue without damaging paint...cotton wool balls and rub like crazy...when it becomes ineffective....change cotton wool balls and add more WD40 or brake cleaner.....then T-cut and/or polish...You can use a heat gun also but evidently too close and too long and it can melt paint.....Acetone/nail varnish remover on cotton wool again can take glue off after stickers removed but can also take paint off if applied too harshly...always take your time...starting at a corner and prise up slowly...always applying heat...if it tears...try another corner etc etc

I use Prepsol. Or any similar solvent that a painter would use to clean the surface of oils and contaminants before painting. Works a treat amd won't damage the paint
