i have removed the plastic door trims from my mk2 punto which is black, i did this because one of them was falling off, and i thought the car would look better without them, i used a hairdryer and heated them off pulling lightly. i have now got the double sided sticky gluey tape on my paint work, i have used a credit card sized piece of plastic to try and scrape it off without doing any damage but cant seem to get rid of it...any ideas?

have you tried using some strong cleaning stuff like abit of petrol or something, but test it on a bit of paint work that isnt seen first to make sure it doesnt strip the paint :D hope you get it off mate

i used turps last time, but petrol would work just as well i imagine. The thing to remember is to wash car afterwards to make sure non is left on your lovely shiny paint
