    it took me just over an hour, with a very sore thumb for a few days after :P

    if your lucky enough to get it all going in one pull you should be ok, but most of the time its peeling loads of little sections :P

    that was also on a hot day and keeping the vinyl hot while peeling

    hair dryer at same time, paints perfect underneath

    main problem with peeling it off, is that its wrapped round the door, pillar etc and under trims
