Unhappy Glue on Body Paint. HELP!

Hi guys, Am new here. Am also a new car owner. Recently discovered some stains on my car. Went for Cheap Cheap SPC quality carwash, then realised that the 'stains" are actually GLUE! Any kind soul out there has any ideas on how I can remove them without hurting the paint? Understand that budget is the key word...

Distress,

Distress,
i dont know about glue... i know when i rebadged my car, i used a hair dryer to heat the adhesive up... It got it off pretty nice.. Dont make it hot.... just heat it up a little... Also you can use like 3m like tree sap remover or watever its called...

I guess it depends on what type of glue it is. If it's stuff that's designed to dry in 2-seconds, it'll probably be harder to remove than Pritt Stick...

I think it is industrial adhesive. I've tried using Zippo Lighter Fuel and it CANNOT be removed.

Will try the Hair-Dryer to heat it up though. It sounds really feasible. THANKS!
