I have scoured the internet trying to find a way to remove the RPO sticker from the inside of the trunk lid after a lid swap without damaging it to no avail. So I decided to give it a try. I used a dirt devil steamer and used almost one and a half tanks of steam on it. With a lot of patience slowly peeling it away while steaming it came off in one piece and was still very sticky. Sticky enough to install it on the new trunk lid. Hope this helps someone. Enjoy

It depends on what style too, I think. 87-88's aren't laminated and I've found on the one I tried I could peel it off in one piece pretty easily as long as you get a good corner to start with. The one from my 86' I re-applied to a new trunk lid was trickier with it being laminated, a heat gun helped get it off in one piece IIRC.
