Dawg, here's what works very well.... use the heat gun very sparingly...if the decal gets too hot you will leave alot of glue. After removal of the decals then wipe down vigorously with Orange Cleaner...the spray on kind. that is the easiest way to remove any glue residue. For buffing I suggest going to a boat yard and buying some Durotech or Aquabuff 2000 and mix Marine Teflon polish in with the Aquabuff. The teflon will prevent burning and make the buff pad less sticky. Use about 1 part teflon to 6 -7 parts ASquabuff. Use a disposable paint brush to wipe on a thin film of the mixture in a 3' x 3' area and then buff it like you really mean it! Buff until all mixture residue is absorbed into the pad. Use lambswool pads available at an automotive paint type store. Buy a high speed buffer that is not too heavy. If you can't find the Aquabuff or Durotech 2000 call Lamb's yacht Center in Jacksonville, FL and get them to send you a container. you'll have it looking brand new and so slick a fly could slip on it and break a leg. Let me know how it comes out.
