Your decal "ghosts" are common problem for all of us who have removed older decals. Mine were a brighter white color compared to my slightly yellowed body color. Also slightly raised above the body level and very shiny.
I hit the areas vigorously with a rubbing compound applied with a dual-action polisher and couldn't remove them. The compounding did remove a lot of oxidation from the non-decaled body areas, which tended to minimize the contrast.
I decided to live with the ghosts, and just applied a good sealer to slow future oxidation. Others on this forum either allied new decals or paint to hide them further. Search on the forum and you'll read other people's experiences.
Good luck on your project.
