The windscreen tape is easily removed with a hairdryer and/or WD40 for any glue residue.
There was a recent thread about this with before and after pictures but I can't remember from whom
Hopefully they will post a link to it.

Holy crap! What engine did you say it had? Has it been fitted with a bike or a rotary engine? Even F1 cars only rev to 19k! Oh hang on, wait a minute, I think you mean 2000-2100 RPM.
It sounds like you are hitting the resonant frequency of something. A common one on the old E36 3-series was the heater valve rattling at certain engine revs. If sounds to be from the rear it could well be the exhaust - worth taking a look at the state of the exhaust mounts.

Seems a new front pipe which inclides the cat is the only solution if thats what it is. Although before doing that I'm gonna try a long self tapper into it just incase it 'jams' the cat bit and stops the rattle....irritating as all the pipe work is fine.
