As in hypalon thats been glued to hypalon? You will be able to do it but it might be hard.
What is it your doing?

no problem

gentle use of a heat gun on the edges and use a flat hard tool, spatula? to get in between the layers on the edges. work away at it when you have enough to grip, bit of heat, pit of pulling, bit of spatula job done. Thinners will get the residues off use it wih a scotchbrite pad. n.b Cleverer people than me might use gloves when doing the heating pulling bit.

I'd get someone like Paul Tilley or Henshaws to do it.
If you do remove it all the old glue will need removing which is a bugger sometimes.
Like Stu said you could have a go and it might come off ok? I know doing drysuits some cuffs and glue are dead easy some are pigs to do!

Have you any photos of it?

Hi GT.

With aging Scorpion fabric there is a strong possibility that if you try to remove the stripes that the top Hypalon layer will come off with them, even if you use heat. It may be better to cover what is already there with a different design as if the fabric delaminates it becomes difficult for the glue to bond with the fabric below.

You could get Ribshop to do it as well, apologies for not mentioning yourselves.
