Re: Parking sticker removal from fork leg?

Once we are on the subject:
I am building a vitage bike of 1939. I had the fenders painted black by base coat+clear coat. For transport I packed them in bubble-wrap. The bubble wrap left sticky marks on the shiny surface.
Any idea how the best to wash those marks off, not harming the new paint??

Dental floss can be helpful getting the sticker off and/or some gentle heating with a hair dryer. I've had good luck with WD-40 for getting the sticky stuff off without harming painted surfaces.

If it helps, they are made of "that reflective material".. not sure
what to call it. (One is a DoD sticker if that helps.)
