Getting out duct tape adhesive from the dash

My dad duct taped a camcorder to his dash and also glued a pep boys compass to his guage cluster.

I've almost removed the hardened elmers, but I'm having a lot of difficult getting rid of the tape residue. I've tried the 3M adhesive remover, but no dice.


Any suggestions of a solvent/remover that can do the trick.

I'm surprised the 3M didn't work. Perhaps using a cloth or paper towel soaked with the adhesive remover and allowing it to sit for a while on the spot will work.
WD-40 can loosen/remove adhesive residue, or possibly Goof-off or Goo-gone
