    A variable temp heat gun does the trick. It's a horrible job though. Took ages on my 04 FX. Don't get it too hot and scorch the paint.

    I like to soak the mats in purple power and use a gasket scrapper to peel it off. It has always worked for me and doesn't take very long to do as well.

    Once you've got the mats off, 3M adhesive remover works very well for removing the leftover glue.

    I've got a mint Mk II 1978 in the conservatory. The kids tell me I'm a sad git for not letting them use it, so i got the MK III off ebay for them to trash. I've got to stop myself from restoring it though - Kids were right, I am a sad git
