    Least to say I removed my TRD stickers from the rear quarter panel. The drivers side was giving me ridiculous trouble getting off it kept breaking and would not pull off.

    I scratched the hell out of my truck with a razor blade trying to peel these stupid fucking stickers off. I am gonna have to pay around 300 bucks to get it fixed.

    Any advice?

    Yeah, try buffing it out to get it smooth, and look into putting some sockmonkey decals on there. I'm sure you can find something you like. He's having a 20% off sale on stuff he's got in stock.

    Next time you take stickers off make sure you heat them up first. A hair dryer will work if you don't have a heat gun. On my 2004 Silverado, the Z71 decals came right off. I've never taken TRD decals off though. They may be more difficult.

    Best advice is to ASK around before you do something like that!!!!!

    3M Adhesive Remover would have been your answer. There are many other types of stuff that would do it. Is it harmful to the wax job....absolutely. But you can always re-wax. Anyway, if you still have some glue on there get some 3M adhesive remover...can be found at West Marine or any other boat related store.....prolly other places too but that is the easiest place I can think of. ZDon't let it stay on the paint. At some point, it will eat it. But just remove it and then wash off...compound...re-wax.

    I don't know how well it works on car decals, but I usually just dab the stuck-on glue with the glue that stayed on the sticker. It takes a while, but it comes of bit by bit. Works great on DVD security tape, and the stickers that came on my side windows.

    Just for some info. They make some stuff called Goo Gone. It works wonders on stickers and the goo that's left behind. I know it doesn't help you now but...

    wat?
    buy some sticker adhiesive remover from autozone and the leftover will come right off...as far as the paint, get a touchup thing from the dealer and apply it, wet sand it down, buff it, then apply the sticker over it

    Crap that sucks.. use a hair dryer to get the glue off, watch out for the heat guns they get much hotter and you could damage the paint
