Tricks to remove 3M Tape

One of my vent visors needed new tape, so I removed it and been working on getting the left over 3M tape off. I've been using a blowdryer to help make it soft. Any other tricks you guys know?

That's exactly what I've been doing. Just not the Goo Gone. I think that might remove paint.

I think you'll be fine but test it out on a hidden area first.

3m makes a product that is like an eraser wheel. I use it at the shop in my makita drill to remove bodyside moulding tape. Just be careful not to spin it too fast as it can burn the paint.

This ^

I ended up using that on the residual adhesive left over from my vent visors

Used it for debadging my truck.

Direct sun + Goo-gone + thumbnail + elbow grease = clean paint
