    3M adhesive remover will get it off of there in a hurry. WD40 usually works in a pinch as well.

    Goo-Gone...citrus based adhesive remover. Can get it in the household cleaning supplies part of a hardware store or probably even grocery store.

    There are better products out there that are solvent based (Goof-off and Oops come to mind), but those will strip off any wax/clearcoat/maybe even paint.

    My dad who is a body man has always used a heat gun to get the gooey stuff off and the 3M adhesive remover with a shop rag to get the sticky stuff off. I've had my fair share of experience with that system and it seems to work pretty good.

    Go to a local auto paint store and ask them for a Eraser Wheel. You mount it in a drill motor, and basically erase the crap off the side of your rig without harming the paint what-so-ever. My dad tried it on my mom's 2003 car and it works sweet /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
