I'm thinking of starting with the door that opens up to the engine.
I called the dealer I bought it from 15 years ago and they quoted me about $4,000 to remove it.
First watch the uglyshieldremoval videos on youtube. He used sand paper from roughly 100 grit to 300 in 3 or four steps. I used the larger chisel pretty much exclusively. You will sharpen it often.
You have to know which type of mask you have. I had the 3M mask. You won't get it off without a heat gun IMO. A couple of times I had the temp right but forgot to turn the heat gun blower to high and I had a really tough time catching the edge of the chisel to start peeling mask off. After using the chisel I switched to plastic razor for the finishing. I used almost a gallon of Orange Sol contractor solvent and chisels from ABN. Oh yeah, I also used a squeegee to get the gooey mess off before I used micro fiber cloths.
Today was Day 3 and I'm finally done.
