How do I remove a boot that needs to be replaced?

Carefully score the top surface of the mask with a razor blade knife dissecting the mask (boot) into triangular pie-shaped sections approximately 4″ to 6″ at the base. Pull sections off at approximately a 180 degree angle.

If adhesive residue remains after removal of a mask (boot) from a PAINTED SURFACE, clean residue off with a rag saturated with 98% Isopropyl Alcohol (De-Ice Variety). Scrape residue off with a plastic squeegee. NOTE: Follow the solvent manufacturer’s safe handling procedures to prevent possible damage to the painted surface. Be sure to check with the paint manufacturer to make sure that this procedure will not affect the paint you are using in any way.

To remove residue from a PLASTIC LENS, DO NOT USE MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) OR TOLUENE as they may damage the plastic. Use denatured solvent alcohol and some elbow grease.
