Goof-Off or a Orange based product should work.

I have had really good luck warming them up with a hair dryer first and then using a length of dental floss to start the lift off.

A hair dryer and fishing string works as well.

Brake cleaner works surprisingly well on the denim paint. When my dealer's detail guy suggested it I thought he had lost a screw in his noggin. Then he showed me.

Just make sure you're using the non-chlorinated version!!
