heat gun then peal it off. Then use Goo-Gone to get the left over sticky off. Then re-wax.

when I brought home my truck last year removing the dealer sticker was the first thing I did. It was a metalic backed sticker so it was very easy to remove but I used some orange sticker remover to help loosen the adhesive.

I am sure the eraser thing works I would just have a tough time putting anything attached to the end of a drill anywhere near a brand new truck.

Blow dryer and your finger nail.

Then use some kind of chemical to get the glue off.

Get some goo gone. Let it soak for about 5 minutes then pull it off.

My buddy had that chrome molding along the whole side of his truck under the body line at the bottom and we just a heat gun to pull it off.. Then used an eraser wheel, then some paint thinner. Thinner won't ruin the clear coat or paint at all, just throw some wax on after you're done. Turned out real nice. ERASER WHEEL FTW!
