I do mean with the hatch open, this IS a 3 door hatch SVT....So when I say facing down, I mean with the hatch open.

Ohhh ok, I took out the bolts with the hatch up. Then had it closed when I was removing the wing. But as I said, that double sided tape is probably the most pain in the ass part of the removal.

I have a great method for getting things off that are held on with double stick tape. Get a guitar string, the thinnest one. Tie each end on to a dowell rod about in inch in diameter and about 4in long. Slide the guitar string in the slot between the item that it stuck on to the car, and the car, hold each dowell rod in each hand with the string in between your two middle fingers and just slide the string between the item and the car. The tape slices right thru and the item releases right away.
