    Denatured Alcohol. Its not strong enough to damage the clear coat.

    soak it with a solvent, let it soak for about 30 seconds or so then scrape it off best you can with your fingernails. get the last bit of residue with a rag and some solvent. if you end up removing the shine, just grab some polish and buff it out.

    Super clean from Schmucks. I did this on a couple emblems on a friends car, didn't take much besides 5 dollars for the solvent and some elbow grease.
