What year vehicle are we talking about? What paint system used? Base/Clear? Synthetic Enamel?

2012 Camaro SS, not sure of the paint type sorry. It is a factory paint job if that is any help.

Thanks for.all the help, I figured it out. Heat gun about 10 inches away, alcohol to clean off glue.

That would be a Base/Clear top coat. Either heat gun, as you discovered, or disc eraser chucked in an air driven angle grinder. I've seen them chucked in battery drills too with good results. I like the higher RPM that the angle grinder provides.
