Default clear bra removal and cleaning

My wrx has one of the clear bra's on it and I want to remove it because its scratched up and what not.

I pulled a corner up and noticed its going to leave sticker residue. What do I need to use to remove the residue after I remove the bra that is safe on my paint?

Goo Gone, it is citrus based and safe on paint. Home Depot.

I used rubbing alcohol to remove the sticky stuff left behind by 3M paint protection film. It's cheap and works great.

Waaaiiittttt... why are you removing it?! It's probably better to leave it on, even if it is a little scratched up. Can you show me some pics of it?

Yah I can show pics. Its just kinda annoying seeing the scratch.

problem is I kinda ran up under a bush and one of the limbs left a couple big marks on it. Good thing it was there though because they would have been on the paint.

oh and the reason that happened is because my foot slipped off the clutch pedal. Luckly I caught it before I ran into the damn house.

if you havent taken the film off you can use rubbing alcohol to take out scratches and it works (a little secret I learned from chipdefender.com)

it couldnt hurt just dont use to much heat. I have used a can of 3m adhesive remover (basically like goo gone) works good.
