You gotta heat em up slowly and for a long time. Make a box get 3 or 4 heat guns blowing in it for a while and melt the sealant

Or a blow lamp and work your way around removing it as you go. Itโ€™s not easy either way ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป

Yeah Iโ€™ve made my temporary oven the other day but I realised that itโ€™s not butyl rubber itโ€™s permaseal, Iโ€™m going to make my own hook tool to cut around the suff.

If all else fails I will cut the lip with my dremel and cut the rest of the rubber out. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
