I second the naptha (lighter fluid) suggestion (although I haven't used it
on paint). I had a Simpson multimeter that had a price tag affixed to its
plastic lens for what was probably many years. I didn't want to scratch or
damage the lens. I was able to lightly fingernail the paper part off.. but
the adhesive remained. After asking around (here and on other forums), I
settled on trying naptha. I was worried that it might dissolve the plastic.
But I decided to give it a go. I couldn't find a store that sold it. So, I
went to a smoke shop and there were about a dozen guys inside puffing on
giant stogies. The store was a bona fide gas chamber. I held my breath for
the duration of the transaction and until I exited the store. I got the
lighter fluid but when I got back in the car, my daughters were choking
from the stench that I had absorbed during the 60 seconds I was in the
store. When I got home, I applied the lighter fluid with a q-tip and the
adhesive came of beautifully with no damage to the lens.
