diamond shield removal nightmare

Fingernails are worn out and still have about half or the front to peel offfffffffffffffffffff!!! Anyone have any tricks to getting this stuff off?
Tried heat, it just makes it gewy. The paint is brand new underneath even know the diamond sheild has been on for like 7 years. Been using laquer thinner to get the glue off after the plastic is peeled. At least it is a sit down job!

I was at my repair shop today while the 3M guy was removing Diamond Plate from a Monaco. He used a heat gun, wall paper steamer and a plastic squeegee similar to what you use to spread bondo. It was a long process but he did not scratch any paint and he removed strips of the product at each attempt.
Acetone or trichlorethelene (sp?)work good for the adhesive w/o damaging the finish.
