Our clear bra is dried out and getting mold so we decided to take it off. My wife and I did about 4 hours today and get got maybe 10 percent of it off. This is gonna be a long job......

They are, a pain to remove. The old ones that are cracking are really bad. Almost have to sand them off. We usually use an eraser wheel to remove them.
On newer ones, where the panel underneath has to be refinished, you can start a corner and pull it off. Its hard and a couple of times we have had 2 guys pulling at the same time. Then we just eraser wheel the remaining residue.
Its amazing how strong that stuff is.
