I heated mine a little with a hair dryer and they just peeled right off.

Then use the fishing line to saw up and down (holding the line vertical) between the glue and emblem. Keep the line against the emblem, not the paint.

Use your finger (skin not nail) to rub the majority of the glue off. Then, using a clean microfiber towel, use some googone to get rid of the rest of the glue. Wash then wax (if desired).

Lastly, grab a cold brew from the fridge, and enjoy your labors.
Thanks for listing the steps. I want to take care of those badges today if there is no rain.
