    Those vinyl letters usually need a bit of heat to get them off
    Then you have access issues and would need some sort of tower or crane to get up there

    Yeah your right probs need heat gun or something which I'm not really interested in doing. It look higher than it is and you could get it off ladder but don't think I'm going to go through the hassle etc
    Thanks for your thoughts tho

    Iwould use a heat gun to get the lettering off then use accitone to get the sticky glue off but you want good money for your troubles.Make it clear it is not an easy job.

    As above - heat gun and glue remover, It wont take that long, heat the corner of a letter up for a minute and it should peel straight off

    an hour or two tops
