Stick a Darwin fish on it instead.

Bug and Tar remover will work perfectly on that. Or adhesive remover. B&T remover is cheaper though IIRC, and it has MANY uses. If you can peel the bumper sticker off or at least most of it, B&T remover will work too. I took a 10-year-old bumper sticker of one of my cars once with that stuff.

Goo Gone works well to remove stickers.

You may need to polish the area that the fish was on as it sounds like the paint has faded a little.

Good luck!

You can use WD40 to remove the goo. It worked VERY well taking off Ziebart coating under the hood of the SSE and did nothing to the paint.

I did risky work today removing the SSEi emblems from my doors. I used Dupont Lacquer Thinner. :o I did have to put a couple fresh coats of polish on afterwards. After the polish and wax all I could see for blemishes were a very slight outline of where the SSEi emblems were.
I wouldn't recommend the lacquer thinner for the faint of heart. It can be really tough on paint and is very tedious work.

not true, it wont harm Clearcoat, unless it was at one time repainted with some realy shitty clear at one time in its life. like i have said before, many many of the jobs i do at work have one thing or another washed off with Laquer thinners.
