I have a box cutter blade but is there any adhesive remover to take stickers/duct tape residue off? I'm gonna need extra strength too, this stuff is on really good.

WD-40
No I am not kidding. Get a rag wet with the stuff and hold it on the sticker residue until it begins to soften and then rub it off.
I had a car that I kept duct taping the bumper back on after it was involved in an accident, it took the insurance company a while to figure out who was paying for what. The car was black and I used black duct tape so it wasn't that noticeable, to get the residue off I used WD-40 and it worked like a charm and it was cheap. When ever I am removing stickers from my windows I use it too, makes the razor blade less likely to scratch the glass.

But keep it off the paint. It can absorb into the paint and cause it to lift.

I am not talking about leaving it sit for hours, maybe 30-45 seconds and it starts to soften the glue up, I have also used it on RC car bodies and that paint is even thinner and more likely to be damaged, with no ill effects. I am not doubting a body mans advice when it comes to paint and what can harm it, I am just stating my experiences with glue removal. Thanks for the heads up though.

There is one on the front bumper and two on the rear. I'm pretty sure they are communist flags but I'll have to get back to you on that one. Also, would the WD-40 trick work on the side molding removal as well? I am getting sick of my ugly molding No
