Get a hair dryer and heat the sticker up, you should be able to start to peal it back. As you are pulling the sticker back, heat the sticker from underneath as you are doing it. Should come off very easy.

lols


It's just a vinyl decal, so yeah, a little heat and a fingernail, or soft scraper (e.g. a credit card) will get it off.

Side effect of removing it may be an obvious difference in the fade of the paint underneath it.

Heat did the trick. I took it off when i got home from work, gave the paint a polish and you would never have known they were there. Much cleaner looking... And less gay haha

Cheers guys!
