HELP!
Tried using Goo-Gone & 3M's Adhesive remover, but the adhesive is not going anywhere. Seems as though it has melted through the lens under Florida heat (car's not garaged)


And now I've made a mess... Lens restoration kit?

sorry, I should reiterate, I got the film off, but the adhesive won't come off with goo-gone and adhesive remover.
It was pretty easy to peel the film off under the sun.

Some say to try WD40, let it sit for a few minutes but you may want to try it on a non visible area to make sure it does not react with the plastic.

Try denatured alcohol, or naptha, or a paint thinner. Those work great for taking off sticky residue. But be careful with the paint because they are great at taking off paint too! I suggest taking the lenses off and trying one of those, just put some on a rag and rub vigorously. You should notice results almost immediately.
