    What?
    I bought the shitty version of this and it uses 3m tapes to put on. I'm planning to remove this and wanted to know how to you remove the excessive 3m tapes that's going to be left over without damaging the car?

    A heat gun also helps, and goo gone or something like that with a rag.

    If you take a Razorblade to it you WILL scratch the paint if trying to get it completley off that way.

    i wouldn't use any type of solvent....when you take the ventshade off just go as slow as possible and the tape will not leave as much residue.
