you need the following ingredients:
1) heated garage
2) blowdryer
3) dental floss
4) clearcoat polish (Meguiars, etc)

yep, "look mah, no hands!", ie use the floss, not your muscles. patience is key, and if you do it really slowly, you won't need the clearcoat polish (yeah, okay you'll still need it, hahaha)

fishing line would be better, i had the cheap brand floss that would break because of the heat. so i would have to reheat when trying to get another line of floss.

on the fog covers pop them out and bring inside, easier when they warm up.

Good luck with the trade. It is a good look without the wing but I haven't seen too much success with folks finding an actual "wingless" trunk lid.

on the stickers on the doors and fog light covers heat them up with a hair dryer, and then use a soft plastic putty knife to peel an edge up, then pull the sticker off of the car.
