Please Help

So I got some angry eyes for my jeep that are stuck to the body with some 3m type tape. I no longer want them and have no clue how to get them off, I've tried pulling them off, prying them off, using a razor blade to cut the adhesive off... nothing works. Please help me

How about a heat gun or hair dryer to soften up the sticky stuff?

Is it something you can pull floss under to cut the glue?

I kinda want the back story of how they got from the venders hand to needing to be unbonded ...
I think the ring will absorb too much heat to soften the bond at the body but try it - floss is step two, use acetone or "goo gone" to remove adhesive remaining.

Won’t acetone hurt the paint or clear coat? I know goo b gone doesn’t but it seems like acetone would.

Regular old alcohol isopropyl will cut through the glue also

I was able to finally get them off... Used the floss to loosen them up, then a flat head to pry it up enough to get my hand behind it cut the remaining adhesive with a knife. All thats left is to get rid of the adhesive with goo be gone.

Acetone evaporates real fast - so simply work with small spots and move quick - it wont stay behind and continue to solvent work. I have not seen it damage any of the clear coats I have messed with. That said I wax heavily on em when fresh... so my problems are more along the lines of getting stuff to stay on - not come off...
