I had my window smashed in last week and I had to cover the hole up quickly before it rained, so I used a plastic bag and duct taped it on... Now that the window has been replaced I still have some of the sticky residue on the car body itself and some of the black window trim,, what would be the best thing to get this crap off?? Something like goo-gone or maybe using a blow dryer?

WD-40 if you've got some around the house. Works great at getting scuff marks off side sills too if you ever need to do that.

Anything you use though, keep water nearby to wash it off. Most anything serious enough to remove duct tape residue you probably don't want sitting on your paint for a while.

Rubbing alcohol works pretty well.

Goo Gone and Goof Off both say they can damage paint. A third product called OOPS! (available at Wal-Mart) does not have that warning, and it removes goo well. I used it to remove residue from my V6 side badges.

Goo Gone is not going to damage automotive paint, maybe household paint. But I would also not leave any residue behind after using goo gone.

Well I've used it on multiple cars, or multiple qualities, and I have never had a problem... But again I could see it slowly eating it away if you left a big puddle of it on your car for a long period of time, just wipe up after you apply.
