Ok. so I just removed my moulding with the 3m eraser wheel and all the glue came off fine. However, now I have a pencil thin outline of the mouldings on my truck. I used goo gone and no luck there. I know your supposed to wax after removing the mouldings but I cant do that till this weekend. Will the waxing solve my problem or is there something else that needs to be done?

clay bar and wax should do the trick

on mine I just used my fingernail and scrape perpendicular to the line to scrape it a little, then try the eraser wheel again or use rubbing alcohol on a cloth and rub hard.

Fine polishing compound may help. Depends on old the truck is or how long the stripes been on it!

strip wash, claybar, and polish should take care of it. seen it happen dozens of times and its never something that can't be removed with a complete detail.

Well, after removing everything on the passenger side, I moved onto the drivers side and proceded to do the same. When I removed everything I noticed there was a difference in color and I was thinking because of the mouldings covering that spot they should blend with a wax job. Come to find out as I look closer, when my truck was hit by a tree during the hurricane, the shop that painted it did not paint under ANY of the side mouldings on the drives side leaving 2 different colors with an outline of where the mouldings were. Now I have to get those spots repainted and its coming out of my own pocket!!!!
