Paint Protection Film

I used steam to remove the driver side & a heat gun to remove the passenger side "protective" film garbage that turned yellow & looked like tacky garbage. The adhesive is still there after goo be gone & heat gun with plastic razors (which damaged the paint in 2 spots). How can I get this trash off my car? The stickers pealed fairly easy; it's the adhesive that's giving me trouble.

Saw a youtube video where the guy used wd40 to remove the plastic vapor barrier sealant, if that's what you mean

Isopropyl alcohol can sometimes help. Or, you could also use WD-40 or similar lubricants. Another option is to use a special clay bar.

Took it to a body shop after spending 5 hours and a Dremel. $100 and it's 90% better. They used a big rubber wheel on a pneumatic grinder. Threw glue on the door & discolored the rock guards a little.
