Goo gone not working

So, I debadged my truck, and have a bunch of glue, and/or the badge outline leftover. I tried goo gone and it worked slightly, but left the outline and some glue. Anything else you guys recommend? i dont want to try alcohol because I know it eats the clear coat. Thanks.

Have you let it soak? I removed the trim pieces on my Dodge Ram that had been on there for about 5 years and faded horribly. It took some elbow grease and some time of soaking in spots. It did take a lot of time and effort. Also used WD-40 in spots, couldn't really tell a difference between the two though.

Laquer thinner or acetone works. Wipe off the sticky, follow up immediately with a dry rag to clean it back off. Put some polish on it and it's fine. Factory clear hold up really well unless it's allowed to "soak" in it for a while.
I have to do it all the time. I paint cars for a living.

Alcohol stripped my clear coat immediately. I still have a dull spot on my tailgate. To the op, just be patient with the goo gone and then wash and wax and you're good to go.

If it comes down to it...get you some light compound and give it a little polish. Might be a good time to just give the whole truck a good detail and get rid of the glue.

Stripped a bunch of ambulances of their decal/lettering. Used "Goof-Off" from True Value. Works like a charm!

Take some luke warm water and dilute a cup of Simple Green.

The mix should be 50/50. It will work great and will not damage the clear coat.

DO NOT PUT LAQUER THINNER OR ACETONE!! Why the F**K would anybody do that?!

If alcohol got instant clear coat removal... then what the hell is PAINT THINNER gonna do!

I had the same problem when I did mine. I went to Andvance Auto Parts and bought a 3M Eraser Wheel cause I really didn't feel like wasting my day trying to rub all that glue off. The wheel worked great!!! Took it all of in 10 minutes. I keep my truck outside all the time and for that reason you could see where the badges were in the clear coat. I worked the entire truck over with a clay bar and them waxed it. It lookes like new again and I am still debating wheter I am putting the badges back on, cause in my opinion, it looks better without them.
