You can get the pathname of the installation by evaluating...

ToFileName[{$BaseDirectory, "SystemFiles", "FrontEnd", "Palettes"}]


ToFileName[{$UserBaseDirectory, "SystemFiles", "FrontEnd", "Palettes"}]

depending upon whether it was installed in the user directory or the system
directory.  You have to delete it by hand (you could use DeleteFile in 
Mathematica, of course).

There are still a few rough edges around Install...expect more improvements to 
be coming.  But I'm glad you find it useful.
