Fender Flare Tape/Glue Removal?

I'm just removed the factory flares from my truck and I'm looking for the best way to remove the tape/glue that was left behind without damaging the paint. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

I removed the big peices by just peeling it off by hand. Used some adhesive remover, don't remember what brand.

DO NOT USE AIRCRAFT REMOVER. it WILL remove any and all paint almost instantly. and sometimes has the habit of eating plastic. get some 3M adhesive remover from Orielys or your local parts store. Aircraft remover is a paint stripper and WILL remove the paint. i work in a body shop and deal with this stuff all the time. you will make a big mistake if u use it. before you retape the mouldings make sure that all the glue residue is off and the mouldings are clean. also. do not cheap out on your double face tape. use the 3m stuff and do it on a semi warm day. it will help the glue stick. i find that the white foamy **** thats made by 3m sticks good but the foam seperates. so use the black stuff with a rubber backing. if prepped corectly you will NEVER have a problem.

they also make something called an eraser wheel. its basically a giant piece of rubber that you put in the end of a high speed drill and it removes the tape without a sweat. completely paint safe
