You can NOT use the vinyl erasers on any of your plastic parts (that means front and rear fascia/bumpers). My car was destroyed by the previous owner's attempts to remove the vinyl and had to be repainted. Good luck. You may want to hire a professional, but be warned - it's time consuming ($). If you get it all off, I would go with paint rather than new vinyl again or you will be having the same problem down the road.

If in fact you are at less than 135F at the surface with the heat lamp, then that should be NO problem for plastic bumpers.

 

OEM 2k urethanes cure for 30 minute at 180F with no issues whatsoever at the bumper plants during the factory paint application. The plastic easily withstands the temperature with no problems.

 

As a matter of general reference, keep the following in mind. There is a fairly simple way for most humans to detect over/under 135F. Under 135F, you can hold your hand on the surface indefinitely with only mild discomfort. Over 135F, you will likely have to quickly remove your hand due to the burning sensation. This is a quick trick that industry insiders use in several manufacturing fields, including OEM painting.
