    Warm it up with a heat gun or hair dryer and it should come off pretty easy. Careful if you use a heat gun as it can damage the finish.

    It's been so hot out here, I wouldn't need a blow dryer. And, I would also be very careful about using a heat gun.

    I took a full set of red anniversary stripes off my car on a warm summer day without issue. Just pulled them right off. It was surprisingly easy.

    I took my white stripes off with a heat gun.. You shouldn't have to get it too hot, a little heat and they'll pull right off

    warm it up and it should come off pretty easy. when you get it off you can use WD40 to take the glue off. i would wash it after just to make sure everything is off.
