DON"T use the plastic scraper. Use a hair dryer and fishing line to remove the molding. Then goo gone, heat (from the hair dryer) and a clean microfiber towel to take off the last of the adhesive. It'll take time but it is worth it. Once you got all of the adhesive off, make sure you finish with a good polish and wax.

If you take your time and do it right, the results will be flawless. NEVER take anything to your car like a plastic scraper, razor blade, etc etc. Just...no...wtf freddy517???

if you can heat up the glue it will come off easier too. get a hair dryer and a extension cord if the wire does reach
