    A rubber sanding block will shift it, then polish off the rubber marks...

    I used heat gun to get the Griffin off. Then my nails with the heat gun. I used petrol to get the rest off with some good rubbing. Petrol didn't do any harm on the paintwork. Then t-cut and polish around 3-4 times to get rid of the faint outline. Done my whole car in about 1 hour and a half inc. sides.

    Cheers thanks for replies. Will probably get some tar remover and start with that. Don't worry, will only try brillow pad if wall paper scraper don't work. Thanks again.
