Adhesive on headlight

I removed the eyelids from my headlights and adhesive is resisting to come off. I've tried goo gone, clay bar, and a head light restoration kit. Any other suggestions? I was thinking of trying a some sort of degreaser.

3M Adhesive Remover and my finger nails did the trick with a spare set of headlights I had with those eyelids on them.

At this point it's a very small amount left on there so it may be hard to totally remove. Ill try goo gone again and possible move onto the 3M. Thanks
