Fred, you are right on!  I have used Goo-gone for years on electronic
gear.  It is great for any label/glue problem.  I had all sorts of
Military gear with these stickers on it ...and some of them 40years
old.  Goo-gone took it off.  You have to be patient with it.  New labels
come off very easily.  Older ones you have to work the stuff into the
label and then it comes off slowly without any damage to any of the
metals or paints that I have seen.
