    took me about ten mins mate, warmed it up with a hairdrier then used a credit card to get the badge off, then cleaned the gunk off with autoglym tar remover.

    I used some dental floss and took 5mins to get the badge off then about another 20 to get all the sticky **** and the marks it left behind off.

    Still not sure whether to take off the badges along the chrome strip.

    Took me 2 mins to get rid of the Griffin, a kettle of hot water over it, then peeled it off.

    The Glue and other stuff was a different matter. An hour and half, and £15 in Halfrauds later, and it was gone!!

    But my arm, shoulder and elbow ached for 2 days afterwards!!
