    Warm it up well with a hairdryer and you should be able to carefully scrape it off with your fingernail.
    Paraffin or some car polish on a cloth with some elbow grease should do it.

    I just warmed mine up and used my texaco bonus card to scrape off the excess with the help of some white spirit. I then T-cutted the area and waxed the entire bootlid.

    As above mate I used a hair dryer, my thumb nails (hurt the next day but worth it) some tar remover and soapy hot water, T-cutted it after to get rid of the difference in paint and lines of grime lol...
