    Thanks for the comment , it was very easy to remove, thought it would stick to it , but all i had to do was shake it a bit , and it removed almost perfectly

    Yes, a few chips broke , but it`s very easy to fix, since all you need to do is make a bit more cement mix , apply it , let it dry , sand it , and your` done
