Been wanting to removal my Sport Armour for a while now. I notice that the armour is attached to the bumper with the scrivets and is (glued on?). My question is how hard is it to remove it myself without scratching/damaging the bumper? Or would you advise to get a shop to do it? Anyone had experience with this? Thank you!

scrivets underneath and double sided tape out front.. if installed per the instructions

a big hassle is where people 'help' the tape by using sikaflex and if that is the case
...you will need professional help (coz it ain't coming off)

I read somewhere that you can spray wd40 between the bar and the armour to help unstick the tape .

This is on my list of things to do as well. Had to get the bumper resprayed the other week and forgot to tell them to leave the sports armor off!

Hi, I had a small stone chip and a garage wall scrape to repair which I think were $90 each (i.e. sand, prime, blend basecoat) plus a full clear coat, and that was $350 (inc the $180 in repairs)
