Well I soaked mine in spic n span and used a sos pad

Goo Gone probably would have done the same if not better.

I think buggman use brake fluid or something, soaked it for a few days to get it off. I just scuffed it up and painted it and came out fine

I use brake fluid (the cheap stuff from WallyWorld).
I got a big aluminum pan, brush on the brake fluid, let it set a few days, brush on more as needed, scrub off with a scrubby kitchen sponge & it comes off pretty well.

Wet sand down from 220 to 800 grit, wash in the sink, wipe down 2 or 3 times with rubbing alcohol & it's ready for paint.
I did Clinton's bezel this way & it turned out pretty well.

I might have to try the spic n span though.
