Rh1no - Are you going to post some pics of the wrapped lip when done? Could be very tempted to do this myself. Are you using black or a colour coded carbon effect wrap?

Sorry to be a pain but I had a look at removing mine yesterday and I'm a bit confused do you heat it up to remove it from the lugs or do they pull off first? Really appreciate the help thanks

The lip is stuck on with two adhesive strips... (They are the stickiest thing ive ever encountered...) and also located with lugs, so you will need to heat it up to remove it. The lugs are attached to the lip and do not come off (Unless like me you break one!)

I found it easier to start one end, get to the middle, then start from the other side.

Hairdryer will definitely help. If you use a heatgun be careful not to get it too hot otherwise you'll bend it out of shape.

FINALLY! had a dry day after I finished work to be able to get a extension cable outside to use a hairdryer on this bonnet lip to get it off, absolute nightmare the two strips of sticky adhesive is like super glue easily took me an hour to safely remove without breaking or damaging anything(almost gave up half way through lol). I did it on my own but a second pair of hands definitely wouldn't of went a miss, easiest and quickest part about it was the vinyl wrapping which I thought would have been the worst considering I've never done it before but if a hadn't read this guide before hand to give me a better idea before I done it a reckon it would have been a disaster lol

I tried to put a few pictures to show but everything on the app has changed and wont let me I'll try later
