You may be able to just wedge a screwdriver behind the lip n very gently n carefully jimmy it off by slowly working the screwdriver up the back of it. But you may risk snapping it if they are fragile.
Got 3 options I suppose, 1) risk it n be very careful n gentle with screwdriver 2) if you have a spare 20quid, buy a new lip n just rip your existing one off 3) invest in a very long extension lead

Found a mate who lives locally with a garage that I can get into so I can actually get a hairdryer to my car. Hopefully getting this one done in the next few weeks.
Ah fair play mate. Knew you'd find a way round it. Reckon you'll paint it or wrap it?

I think paint, although wrapping it would then match my new badges.
Would be more permanent to paint obviously so would be better to, but then it'll cost you about 30quid for the primer, paint, lacquer n sandpaper. You'll also have to drive round for 3 days with your bonnet looking minging lol.
But if you wrap it, it'll match your badges which will look sexy, n there's no need to wait 3 days for it to dry, just wrap it n whack it on your car. Plus if you've still got a strip of wrap left it'll cost you nothing n save 30quid over painting.
Do you reckon your confident enough to spray it mate?

Hairdryer is pretty essential, i wouldnt want to risk removal without it as its !Removed! sticky stuff!! looks like youve got it sorted now anyway!

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?
I will do yea, when it's done I will get a couple of pics up. Using the black carbon wrap.
