Fishing wire...and a head gun if needed to get off old glue and if that doesnt work use wd40 its odd but it works

lol.. i just used my fingers and pryed.. they came off, but half the adhesive stayed on the truck. from there, i just used a rubbing compound to get the adhesive off.

but yeah, i recommend doing it the proper way, dont take my way as the better bet. it might screw something up(what, i don't know exactly, but better to say it to be safe)

I'm not going to my first class, and yeah.... i picked the frikin coldest day day of the year to try to do this. I got the emblems off but I'm warming up/eating breakfast right now. I can't find any wd40 so I gotta go to the store to get some.

OK, Here's the pic finally!! Took forever to get that crap off! The WD40 wasn't working very well so I tried OXY Orange or whatever it's called. It came right off with a razor blade.

I was really careful and only scratched the paint a little. It was the only way I could get the crap off. If it was a normal FL day, it would have come off more easily. You can't even see any of the scratches.
