I think they are just double sided tape and which you would want to get an eraser wheel and some heat would help in the process of removing them. And your paint should be fine underneath them.

Thanks very much. How risky are these eraser wheels to use...any risk of taking paint or clear off?

You can "burn" the paint with the eraser, if enough pressure is applied. I have never used one yet, but from what I have read, it would take quite a bit of pressure. You can find them at auto body supplier stores, or online.

I did this to mine after I bought it.

I let it sit out in the sun for a day, then applied more heat to them using a hair dryer, pulled a corner up then grabbed vice grips and pulled!! About 80% of the adhesive came off with the panals, the left over adhesive I just rubbed off with my fingers.

It wont pull the paint off unless it was painted with a can underneath. Just pull them off and use your thumb to roll off the residue left. Might ge a blister but it will go away in a few days. Cheaper then accidentally burning your clear.

I had those on for a while trying to decide if I want to take a chance removing them and not fucking anything up. Didnt hurt my paint what so ever pulling those off.
