Removing 3m paint protection

Hi All.

When i purchased my vehicle i had the entire vehicle wrapped in 3m paint protection. Its been a few years and the roof is starting to peel and i would like to remove the entire thing. Two questions.

1. Any recommendations in the GTA who would remove this? How much should i be expecting the pay? (the vehicle is small, porsche cayman S)

2. If i do this myself I understand I need a heat gun and there may be glue leftover. Can someone recommend a product to remove the glue? (i remember reading that there is an orange based product?

Thanks!

The orange based product you're thinking of may be goo gone?

How old is the film? Isn't it under warranty from the original installer? Must have been pricey to do the whole car.

Maybe cheaper to redo the roof, heck even wrap it in different color, that seems to be the latest the rage anyway.
