    Whats the easiest way to remove the double sided tape left behind when removing the moulding. Ive tried adhesive remover with no luck.

    One of the body guys at work has a wheel thats like a big eraser, kinda like rubber, that takes the sticky tape right off and doesn't mar the paint.

    If you heat it up and remove as much as possible it will leave some sticky residue behind. You can use adhesive remover to remove this, it will take some elbow grease and make sure that your rag has got a good bit of the remover on it.
