Double sided tape removal

Hello pros,

I was wondering what product I can get from the local auto store to take off the 3m double sided tape on the lower part of my bumper. I took my front lip off and some of the tape is still there.

Thanks!

Goo Gone. I used it to take off my ED Zoll plate, and that was serious tape! No harm to my paint.

Have a look at the MSDS of lighter fluid and Goo Gone..both are hydrocarbons/petroleum distillates..

Spend less and go with simple lighter fluid.

+1, I prefer to use as few harsh chemicals on the paint as possible. Heat and some elbow grease is the way to go.

A carefully wielded eraser wheel will do the trick also.
