Bit sad i know but last time i did this it took about 6 hours! I did it today in less than an hour, all the glue gone and tcutted!! Well chuffed. Plastic ice scraper and a bottle of Auto Glym Tar remover worked quite well. Can anyone beat that?

alright for some, my thumb went numb trying to get the scraper under the glue!! i was well chuffed i did it in an hour! Is it that bodyline stuff? I remember using that once, you put it on and a minute or two later the adhesive just wipes off?

Took me about an hour each side - but with the white colour-coded bumpers it looked really odd with the black stips on the tops of the bumpers and nothing on the body work......so an hour later, stanley knife & black vinyl roll, I had new bumpstips made from vinyl! :)
