For the glue, wait til it gets hot tomorrow, wet your finger and rub the glue. The rubbing and pressure will help take the glue off,or at least it did with me.

I made a writeup on it like 3 years ago on here somewhere and I used Armour all Orange wipes and a blow drier and a white rag. t works great. Rub it with the white rag to roll up the glue. Then heat it up with the blow drier and then wipe it really good with the orange clean wipes. It works perfectly. As for the paint comming off???? IDK.

I used turtle wax bug and tar remover, after scraping the majority of it off with my nail

That's why mine is staying on. I don't wanna take a chance on stuff like that. I don't like all the badges gone anyway. Just my opinion...

pencil eraser and paint thinner. done my share of body work, we use an eraser wheel. same material. dont be afraid to use the thinner, just don't dump it on and don't let it sit and you'll be fine.

welp, tried all of that and when i took off the glue it chipped some of the paint off, so i guess i'm going to advance auto soon and see if they have some touch up paint, of course the easiest mod becomes the hardest for me. fml
