    I bought a bike, and the asshat before me though it'd be a cool idea to put stickers all over the bike. I was wondering how can I get the residue off. I peeled off the stickers using a blow dryer, but the residue isn't coming off. I don't want to mar the finish.

    after using the claybar, after polishing, after using paint sealer, after waxing? obviously there is that residue that you need to wipe/buff off before moving on to the next section. does everyone use microfiber towels for each (which gets very expensive), or terry cloth towels, cotton tshirts?
