Now that I use masking vinyl I don't have that problem any more. When I did I use to use Bestine rubber cement thinner on a paper towl and it came off pretty good never realy bothered the paint either.

Here's my latest. It has some rough spots but it was my 1st time with an airbrush, paint mask & pin-striping.

This was my inspiration

yes ,your right. The black goal posts need a trim, too bad you can't get them in white nylon so you could dye them to match your paint scheme.

Unfortunately, they're not direct fit for any particular car.
