    I use a heat gun and then follow up with some "Goof Off" adhesive remover.

    Hair dryer worked well for me. Once and awhile I would get a rip and have to retry, but it seemed to work pretty well

    I thought stress cracks would be taken care of with warranty?

    I just looked at my hull yesterday,and found stress cracks everywhere underneath, and even up in the yellow right in front of the hood. I wonder how long they have been there, and never noticed them. Let me know if anyone gets this covered under BEST warranty.
