My understanding is that these model trucks are notorious for having the trim come loose. I have the missing piece and would like to re-install. What is the best way to clean up the residual tape on both the door and the trim?

What is a good product to re-install?

could try some citrus glue remover, a eraser wheel, or some other glue remover.

3M makes an adhesive remover. I have used it for this same thing in the past. Might use an old credit card for a scraper once adhesive is softened. Razor blade will cut into your paint.
