hey guys, well i decided to acetone my emblems, and i found the easiest way to go around the outer edges is w/ a razor blade and just scrape it off(easily as to not scratch it) but the other parts, should the black melt off really easy w/ the acetone? im using fingernail polish remover, but the ingredients say it has water in it, maybe i should get some pure acetone? gimme some tips, thanks, and heres a pic of my progress:
EDIT: forgot to mention im using q-tips and dipping them in the polish remover, then gettin at the emblem like that.

u CAN Take them off, but it'll be more of a mess/hassle than its worth unless u feel u cant do the job 110% unless u do
heres how ya do it if ya want
take a hair dryer to the emblem for a good 5-10 minutes....then use whatever device u can find to peel the emblem back...theres gonna be a lot of 3m type tape holding it on, and will turn very tacky, so be cautious...u can then start working the emblem off, but be careful, as these emblems can bend....
also, to reattach it, u must have more clean 3m tape
well finished them, wat a PAIN IN THE ****, man, that was a pain to do, i ended up taking them off and letting them soak for about 10 minutes, then hit em with a stiff bristle brush, got most of the stuff off. on the one i started on on the truck everything came off easy, but the other side, by time i got finished the stuff was almost baked on so the passenger side one didnt come as clean as the drivers side but still looks good, i will get pics tomorrow
fishing string...just go all of the way around the emblem...then pull it off with your fingers... that way you dont have to worry about scrathing the paint.then use goo gone to clean the rest of the sticker off.
I just used alot of acetone on a rag and wiped it over the emblem a couple of times and washed it with car wash soap and water. Haven't had any issues and it got both of them done in less than 10 minutes.
