Yeah maybe a heat gun/ hair dryer would work. Be careful with the paint though.

Soak it in warm water. How to soak it when it's a vertical surface you'll have to figure out yourself :p

I used my mums hair dryer and some nautical whipping twine, which is basically very strong wax coated string used to finish off ropes on boats and stop them fraying, you can get it at marinas. I don't mind saying I did a bloody fantastic job with it, didn't scratch it at all but had to T-cut it cos it was just barely visible in certain lights. You can use a good firm sawing action with whipping twine cos the waxy string should help protect your paintwork, so you don't have to get it too hot with the hair dryer but a little heat makes it easier.
I thought that up all by myself, aren't I clever? lol
