TeacherDK, I see you did the same thing I did. The dealer did not touch my car either. Those sticky foam pads were a shocker, that's for sure. They left that residue, but luckily I had some googone in my cupboard, and the stuff came right off with no adverse affects to the paint. Don't go crazy with the goo gone, it doesn't take much, and use a MF towel to carefully wipe the residue away. I only put a couple of drops on my MF towel, and then used water to wipe off any left over haze. Also, remember, no swirling action, just up and down motion (follow the line of the residue only). I don't know if you'll have to strip that carnuba your dad put on top first though... my guess is the goo gone will cut through the wax.
