And a couple of sticks or small handles so you don't cut your fingers off with the fishing line ...?

i've allways used goo gone on the emblems and side molding if you buy the new spray bottles it comes with a plastic scraper spray it on let it sit for a couple mins then go back and peel it right off. funny thing is all the auto body guys i have told about this have never heard of using it on emblems or molding. go figure.

you can also clean the excess adhesive with WD-40, or bug and tar remover

"goof off" + "lil chizler"..... goof off is a slighty stronger version of goo gone... much better and quicker... and the lil chizler is a old tool graphic designers and vinyl guys have been using forever... no heat... please no heat... most people don't know how much heat to use and mess up the paint... trust me no heat...

you can use heat on it only if your IQ is over 75. seriously, you can do this without messing up paint. as long as you dont hold tha hair dryer on one spot for longer than 20 seconds, you will be just fine. did my whole car like this and it looks great. just my 2 cents
