hey guys,
i took my factory snorkel off my gq and underneath was a pretty thick sticker that was a c*nt of thing to deal with..
anyways i got it off but there are still spots with the sticker goo left on it..
i dont know how to get it off without ****in the paintwork. and to be honest i havent tried anything yet just because i dont want to **** the paintwork.
normally i would use eucalyptus oil or nail ppolish remover but those options make me nervous!!

cheers for any advice

try a product called "CLR" (Calcium Lime Rust) which is available from Bunnings.

I have also used WD40 in the past and a fair bit of elbow grease - Eucalyptus Oil is also worth a try.
