A heat gun can get too hot and ruin the paint if you are not careful. I prefer a hair dryer on the hottest setting. Heat up a little section at a time and pull it off.

mine was painted on, and the shop scratched up the paint really bad tryin to sand it off. The polish and wax kinda covers it up tho. I hope yours is just stick-on.

Should be able to rub it out with a Porter Cable Dual Action Polisher if you have one or know someone who does.
