Use a plastic razor blade to get it off, and goo gone or paint thinner for the adhesive.

If your really carefully, use 2000 grit sandpaper carfully and compound and buff.

Could maybe try just buffing, but i'm not sure what else would remove the outline.

Try a steamer, usually the steam wil remove the glue as well, that is if you have access to one.

Buffer is what I would use
