The 3M adhesive remover is fantastic, it's expensive b/c it works. Big red/white canister with a slow pour spout on the end, $18.99 I think.

^^ Yup, that's the stuff but mine was in an aerosol spray can. Maybe they don't make it as a spray anymore.

I think I've seen the spray. I like putting a little bit on a shop towel instead of spraying directly on though. Either way works!

Granted I did it in the summer time but I just park in the sun for a bit then peel off with my fingernail. Nothing special was needed for the adhesive. Heck I think I used windex. Now that stupid dealer decal on the back, that one was a pain.

Use the hair drier and then apply thinner, spirit or the petrol for the removal of residue. I have been trying this method for number of years. Try and tell.

I also was facing this problem. I was willing to remove the residue from my car. I was afraid that removal of it with the razor may not effect the paint. I visited here and the representative told me the same thing. I used the petrol and the residue was removed.

bought my 2010 used couple months ago, when i took the Wrangler and Sport decals off, the paint matched fine, no fade or anything or markers around it. i did the heat/peel/goo gone method, worked fine. just dont get in a big hurry.

Do the decals get stuck on harder as time goes on? I'm guessing yes.

I just did this last night with my 2013. I bought Goof Off from Lowes and it cut all the residue off instantly.

Fingernail and goo gone worked perfectly for me. Hate dealer stickers.

I removed the dealer badge from the lower left of my tailgate today with dental floss, then I went to oreilly's to get an adhesive remover for the residue. I couldn't find anything on the shelf, so I asked the rep what they had available. He took a cloth and sprayed some detailing solution on it and tired to rub it off. I noticed too late that it wasn't cloth: it was paper towels! Well, he swirled up that area nicely, damn it. Although its a small, not very noticeable area, I'm ticked at myself for not paying attention to what he was doing: he owns a jeep, and he was trying to be helpful, so I just kind of went along.

Any recommendations for getting the swirls/scratches out? I thought about Meguires swirl remover or Scratch X.

Get some nice microfiber cloths and try meguirs scratch-X (which you already mentioned). It's worked wonders for me with other vehicles and even headlights. Just make sure the area is BUTT CLEAN before you start.

I put the same black Jeep emblems on mine, too....started by replacing the one on the grill & liked it so much that I wanted them on the sides as well. But I still have my Sport & Wrangler decals on it.....for now. Now that I see yours without the decals, it's making me want to remove mine

Removing my stickers tonight. Have some goo gone and hair dryer available. Though, being 90+ outside, I'm not sure the hair dryer is necessary

Just as I suspected, no hair dryer necessary. Used goo gone, my BJs card, and a clean rag to easily remove the stickers.

I used the same tool body shops use, an eraser wheel chucked up in a variable speed cordless drill. This is what shops use to remove pin striping.

Wash the area very well fist to make sure you are not grinding dirt into your paint. Use the wheel at a medium speed being carefull not to creat much heat. I good Clay Bar treatment followed by a polish and wax will ensure you get rid of any ghosting that might remain.

Worked like a charm when I debadged my entire pickup. Of course, removing the plastic lettering required the monofilament line trick to "saw" them off, but the eraser wheel made quick work of the two sided tape that remained.

There are many out there, including a nice one from 3M.

Peeled the dealer decal and Xs off yesterday. Figured I'd deal w adhesive today. Didn't have goo gone. Was looking for WD-40 and found bug & tar remover., which is designed to be safe for paint. Before using that I used a diaper wipe (dirt bike racer wash cloths) to soften the adhesive and see if I even needed the bug/tar remover.. Diaper wipe by itself wouldn't get it. Then put bug/tar stuff on a cloth, enough to wet the cloth (didn't want it running down across the wrangler sticker I am keeping for now). Goo came off very easily,
2nd side, I tried bug/tar stuff by itself first. It was workong but was taking a lot more effort. So I used a diaper wipe, then back to the bug/tar stuff and goo came fight off like the first side!
I've had same experience with baked on bugs. Bug/tar stuff by itself doesn't work near as well as diaper wipe, to soften the goo, then bug/tar stuff & goo comes right off.

90% isopropanol works well, too, for glue residue removal. And, if you're putting one back in its place, it leaves the surface clean for another's application. In fact, prior to installing any graphics on any surface, I wipe it down with 90% isopropanol.

Don't think I'd use a credit card or any kind of scaper to remove the glue, though. You might end up with scratches.

You may want to check out a product in the Zaino line. Their Z-5 car polish doesn't remove swirls, it fills them in. To remove them you'd have to reduce the thickness of your clear coat. Depending on how deep the swirls are, it may take several coats. I can attest to the fact it works, though, for small areas, and the entire car for that matter. It takes time and ya gotta be patient if they are deep, but it does work.
