Yup. Im with batman, WD40 wont touch the paint but it will soften up the glue so you can remove it.
For some really nasty glues I use trichloroethane. Not easily had these days, I have some left over from the 90s. But its a good solvent for many glues and doesnt attack auto paints.
But for you, I would soak a rag in WD40 and lay it on the excess glue for five minutes. Better to allow the WD40 to do its work instead of rubbing the glue off with a damp rag. Come back and wipe the glue off. Then wipe again with a clean, WD40 soaked rag to remove the glue haze. Make sure to keep lightly wiping to remove ALL the glue haze. Then wax the paint as normal. JR
What I write is opinion, none of it is factual.
