pretty much impossible to do without marking or scratching the paint in some way, the black stuff is urethane, aka sikaflex...and was really never meant to be taken off.
do a quick search through old threads and you'll find alot of info about it, but as i said, near impossible to get it all off without showing signs (marking, scratching paint, etc.).
if however you were planning on putting painted moulds back over the area or something along those lines you can use a caramel wheel/pin stripe remover...it will leave small "burn" marks, but if your covering the area up it wouldnt matter.
