    I recently took off a chrome trim piece on my door and am having trouble removing the adhesive residue. I have tried GooGone but it does not seem to be that effective. Any ideas on how I can remove the leftover adhesive?

    -Thanks

    Googone works well for me. But for stuff like that you need to let it soak and seep in for full effect. Try to take a rag or paper towel soaked in goo gone and hold it on there for 5 min or so. The oil I'm the goo gone will eventually eat away at the adhesive. Another product that works, but is a little more harsh is orange 90. I've never used on car paint, so use at your own caution

    go to your local auto paint store and ask for a 3m rubber wheel, pin stripe remover, etc. Some people refer to them differently.

    Mount it to your drill and go for it. It's just a big eraser and will get ALL the sticky stuff right off. I used it when I debadged my tacoma and removed all the emblems and TRD stickers. 5min total, and just wipe off the eraser shavings with a dry microfiber, apply sealant, done...

    Believe it or not WD-40 is far and away the best adhesive remover I've ever tried. I've used goo gone and 3M stuff and good ole WD-40 works the best and won't mess up the paint in my experience. Use it for all my debadging. My two cents.

    Yes wd-40 is the least aggressive
