    Goo-Gone and a credit card or guitar pick. As for the Mercier decals, they're under the clear coat so no dice.

    methylethylketone - I had some extra and they cleaned up good on metal.

    I think there was another similar thread earlier. Acetone might also work.

    Start with a hair dryer and try to peel up what you can. Then use the chemicals listed above to remove the glue.
