Plastic Razor Blades

Check with your local garage if you live in a state where safety or emission stickers are affixed to windshields. In the 90s some GM cars had plastic coated windshields that required the use of plastic razor blades (it didn't well) to remove the old stickers. Most garages have a handful laying around in a tool box somewhere. I have used them with a little heat from a hair dryer to remove signage from the  out side of commercial vehicles.

Very good for removing stuck on stripes, moldings, wind spoilers with moon roofs from vehicles in conjunction with an adhesive softener. Can't accidently dig into the paint. Great for models and house painting mistakes too!

Yup. I've used them to remove molding adhesive from the sides of cars as well as scraping bits of gasket from aluminum cylinder heads (steel razor blades can gouge aluminum if you're not careful). I've never thought to use them with model trains however.
