    I would try to soak the tape in wd40, give it 10 minutes then clean up the leftover glue with goo gone :drevil:

    might also try removing the shade from the tape using fishing line (acts as a cutting instrument) and then maybe the tape will rub off with your fingers. worked for mine, but they were only on for a few months....

    Yep, Goo-gone is great. It's mild but effective in removing any tape residue or labels off plastic without melting the plastic away underneath. I usually clean up after with some alcohol for a clean finish.

    3M adhesive remover. It's what body shops use to remove pin stripes. I got some from Carquest.
