heat gun will make it softer, and then you can remove it with ur nails probably.

As everyone listed "blow dryer" peel and use a paint cleaner such as meguirs paint cleaner. Works well with vinyl graphics. Then wax off any residue.

Also make sure you use a clean rag to clean the residue. You're gonna need to get in those corners really good. Adhesive remover should work, too! thumbsup
