Help with rear spoiler please!!

Hey guys I just bought a CF rear spoiler and I was getting ready to remove current stock lip and I couldn't get it off. I've done it many times before with other cars and lips and no issues.. I went full mad scientist and ended up scratching paint and chipping and now I'm stuck.. I used floss, fishing line and heat gun and I can't get it off.. please help me.

since there's some damage that will require repair and paint, my friend who works in the autobody industry told me they use a thin wire, such as a cheese wire, to cut through adhesives and epoxies like betalink. i'm sure you'd have to go quite slowly if you don't want to cut the spoiler and more damage than you need to.

I really appreciate it.. I'm going to have to give it one more try with patience and then if all else fails then take it to a shop.
