cool. i know it's too late now, but if you'd had a buddy spray it with water while you cut, you probably could have saved the paint. might be helpful in the future.

What did you use to cut it? I have been debating cutting mine off with a hot saw/ cut off wheel but really would love to avoid repainting.

I cut it with a grinder with a cutting disk in. Didnt really need painting,just the edges touching up would have done.
But it had some marks on from previous owner so thought would get it done.
