I had removed some of my Diamond Shield before the damage occurred. I was able to remove it with a small, hard plastic scraper and 3M adhesive remover. A Bondo scraper is not hard enough to do the job. I did not loose any paint, but the body shop lost a lot of paint, as they were trying to make rates, where I was able to take my time. I found that sunlight put enough heat on the film to remove it without stripping the paint. A heat gun seemed to make the Diamond Shield a little too soft and it would tear.
