    Hot sun, several cold beers, a spool of 8-16lb fishing line, goo gone, spray wax.

    1) Use the sun to heat up the badges
    2) Drink a beer, or two, while this happens
    3) Use the fishing line to gently cut the adhesive behind the badges, use a gentle sawing motion
    4) Drink a beer between each badge to celebrate your success
    5) Use your fingers to remove any left over adhesive (goo gone for the really hard to get stuff)
    6) Drink a beer after successfully removing all adhesive
    7) Use the wax detail spray to restore the finish the goo gone removed
    8) Stand back and drink another beer. Admire a job well done.

    I would use a heat gun. Soften the emblems are remove slowly. You can use WD40 to remove the adhesive left on that does not come off easily. CLean the WD40 off with alcohol and then polish the paint well. This has worked well for me. Depending on how long they have been on, you may see some shadow of the outline which may be able to be removed with compound. Take your time and you can do this easily.

    Can't. Stop. Watching.

    Visual documentation of natural selection at work.

    After watching a few times I decided if I was in the back of that truck I'd want to be on the drivers side. Looks like those guys would have made out better as they had other bodies to cushion their fall. Sucks to be them though, I wonder what the story is behind it.

    man, just noticed that the last guy to get thrown had his head slammed into the ground one revolution before he was tossed. He was definitely toast. Surprised to see so many people get up right away.
