    I wet sanded it off then buffed everything out when done. If you want some more details how to do it this way, let me know. It turned out great also.

    I would try a hair dryer to heat it up and then pick at a corner or edge with a finger nail.

    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!
