    Exactly.

    Heat up a corner by waving the gun back and forth. Do not get the gun too close. In short order the vinyl will soften, then get a grip and pull it back with your fingers. Heat a little more, pull it back, repeat until done. Use caution as the vinyl will be hot. I recommend gloves. I don't like to use a putty knife as it can tear the vinyl and also scuff/gouge the particleboard.

    Yep , heat gun.You could even get away with a hair dryier.I used a craft heat gun a tiny little heat gun used in card making the missus has.I just stripped my RT 12's. Comes off easy start at a corner heat in front of a section and peel as you go.I didnt use gloves but it does get hot.Dont use a knife as mentioned you will damage the MDF as its very soft and will scratch..For pieces that are hard to lift heat and use a razor blade to lift the edge carefully.

    What are you going to do with your boxes once you take off the old vinyl.
