Side molding adhesive/tape removal?

What's the best way to remove the adhesive and tape off the body panels that is left from pulling the side moldings off? I don't want to hurt my new paint. I had to pull off the side moldings to have my paint guy redo them.

I've used a long handled gasket scraper with good results. Just don't 'SLIP'..

It sucks but the the best way to not risk hurting your paint is the old rub it with your thumb technique.

They make a rubber wheel that goes on a drill that will take it right off. Or you could use the technique that I always have which works great too. I get a rubber sanding block and just rub it with the block ( obviously with no paper on it) and it will come right off and not damage the paint.
