Removing bumper sticker

Whats the best way to remove the Mangoletsi decal that is applied to our Spider's rear? I don't know if it will peel off or if they will have lacquered over it?

Thanks,
Iain

No surprise that it's a Mango sticker on the car

Sorry can't advise on how to remove it but I can't imagine they've put lacquer over it.

Heat it up with a hairdryer and use your fingernails to pick at it.

You should be able to tell if its been lacquered over but unless they put the sticker on in the factory during the paint process (very unlikely) if it's got lacquer on it then I'd suggest its had a very poor repair in its lifetime !!

I parked mine facing the sun and it peeled off very easily a couple of hours later
