When they pull off those white plastic body protector, it left a few little stickey glue thingy. How do I get those off ? I do not want to ruin the paint, it looks like i need to rub hard but I dont want to spread the sticky crap around..

Just use 99% rubbing alky. You can pick it up at any drug store or super market for like a dollar a bottle. Put some on a dry terry cloth towel and wipe in a circular motion. It will be best to wash the area off with water first so you dont trap any large drit prticles and scratch the clear coat with it. There are also products such as "glue-gone" and "goof-off" that work even better, You need to wash it off quickly though, if you levae it on your paint for longer then a half hour or so itll start to eat your paint.

I just remembered, the stuff is called "Goo-Gone". You can get it at longs, rite aide or other stores of the like. Im sure you can even order it online, just google "goo-gone". That stuff will work perfectly.

if u use anything such as rubbing alchol, glass cleaner or goo gone on ur paint, make sure u wax those spots when u are done. cause anything with alchol base in it takes layers of wax right off

clay bar is a big PITA compared to using a solvant like "desolvit" or "goo gone"
True... but I would prefer to do it correctly rather than put something potentially damanging on the finish of my car. Sometimes easiest isn't always best.

a much cheaper option is to use WD-40....it's excellent for dissolving and removing stickyness
