either heat them up with a hot air gun and peel back gently hoping you dont delaminate the fabric or grind them off with an angle grinder very carefully

My pleasure Paul - you guys have done a really cracking job. She's only been sat at home for 3 days now and you wouldn't believe the number of comments that I've had from people walking past - all very positive!!

Yeah - I know that you were tempted, so cheers for letting me have it

I have to confess that getting her onto the front garden was slightly more of a challenge than I'd expected. Not only was she almost 1.5m longer than my old rib, but the trailer is stands pround by another meter. [understatement_mode=on] it made for a bit of fun on Saturday evening [understatement_mode=off] but we got there in the end

Will keep you all posted with more photos as she's cleaned up
