Removing Factory Installed Fin from 99 M3 (archive)

The car did not come with a center stoplight in the rear window, just the fin with a series of LEDs on it. I want to remove the entire fin, so I'm buying a new trunk for the car to avoid bodywork.

I was wondering how to remove the adhesive quarter panel body protector pieces which were installed directly under the fin. Also, I plan to drive w/o a center stoplight for now and trick the OBC into thinking there is a center stoplight when none is connected.

Definitely working with a body shop on this project: B-Line in SJ, CA, and I know this is undoing a factory option so I'd appreciate any tips on performing a "clean" de-install, esp. w/r/t the rewiring for the OBC so as not to have a sensor tell me the center light's gone out.
