Default Debadging Help Needed!!

Trying to debadge my 1500.
First tried some heat and fishing line, no problem their. They come right off.
The problem is getting the residual adhesive off.
Tried using Goo Off. Softened the top layer but didn’t touch the sticky layer close
to the paint. Took me a couple hours to do get ( RAM1 ) off. The Goo Off will not get the residual adhesive off. So I went to the parts store and bought a can of 3M adhesive remover. It also softened the top layer of adhesive but didn’t touch the layer close to the paint. The 3M product does remove the residual adhesive left behind after peeling, rolling and picking the majority of the **** off.
Any suggestions? I’ve still got the other side to do and not looking forward to it.
Heat doesn’t seem to help.
Anyone have a better product or procedure to try.
Thanx!!

I used a plastic squeegee like they used for tinting windows along with the goo gone, shop rag and A LOT of elbow grease. I took me a couple hours to take all mine off

I bought some too. Do you happen to know the part number. The stuff I bought was 3m adhesive remover advanced.
Didn't work too well.
Thanks for the info!

3m Eraser wheel. Zaps the residue off in minutes. Careful because you can burn through your clear coat!

I just pulled mine off at about a 45 degree angle to the rear so it would lift itself off moving forward. Took about 10 min

Thanks Tony, I found this Youtube video from (BOWIEKNIFE) and like you said it works great.
After letting my fingernails heal for a few days I tried this method, Took of the remaining 12 badges in 20 min today with ease.
