Make a piece of fishing line around 14" long, then use it like a saw and cut between the badge and the paint.

Then take a remover like goo gone or prepsol or thinner to remove the glue and such.

I use a popsicle stick, cut in half and rub lightly so you don't mark the paint.

Sometimes a little heat from a heatgun or hair dryer helps, but do not overheat the paint.

The fishing line works well. That is what I used, but I would recomend using gloves when you do it. I have found that WD-40 works excellent on the glue, and it does not hurt the paint. Posts: 17*|*Location: Louisville KY.*|*Registered: 05 February 2005

I don't recommend thinner at all, it will surely damage the clear coat. Use goo gone, they make a spray/gel that I used, it came out great!
