    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

    ^ This.

    Used it for debadging my truck.

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

    When I bought it, Leer camper shell, N-Fab nerf bars, Westin bull bar. So far I've put K&N air filter and Jet Performance throttle body spacer, lights behind grill, snorkel, custom grill, and weather tech floor mats. Axe and shovel w/bed mounts, high lift jack w/bed mount, and Brute force fab rear bumper.
    I would try WD40 and then rubbing alcohol that's like 70% or higher
