Yes, i second that.  Goo Gone works great.  I had a big sticker in the corner of my Ms. Pac marquee and goo gone took it right off.  It leaves kind of a greasy residue for a while, but it goes away after a while.

You can get it everywhere.  I've seen it at Kmart, Lowe's, Home Depot, and Wal-Mart.

Goo Gone, but let it soak a bit. If you use too little, and try to work the glue off too soon, it's still a pain.
NO MORE!!

Mineral spirits works well also.

Ok, well goo gone it is... I am going to need a ton of it I think, as the ENTIRE marquee is covered.  Anyone have an idea of how much solution it would take to do that?  Can I dilute it in water and sit it back in the tub, or is that just going to make a big mess that I can't clean up?

Thanks again

No i would not dilute it !

I would just buy like a cheap plastic tub or something from dollar gereral.

Then pour the GOO GONE in the tub with the marquee.

GOO GONE leaves a greasy residue for a little while,  And it has the strong

scent of ORANGES.

I don't think I would let the goo gone touch the back side.  It may have an adverse reaction to the paint.
