Badge Removal

Hey Guys,

I want to know if any of you have any advice for removing the badges from my XJ. I want to remove things without damaging the paint. Any best practices out there?

Try a heat gun (or a hair dryer) and use fishing line to remove the emblems once you warm up the glue

Rocks and trees work pretty well.

Damaging the paint on a jeep is a badge of honor.

they make bumper sticker remover, which basically eats the glue, if you can get enough behind the badge it should be good. but the heat/fishing line way sounds good too... either way, you'll still have to clean the left over glue residue off. not sure what to use, maybe gas?

Something to be said for living just a few blocks from the Jet Docks! I missed the last boat of the season todayby about 2 minutes, we were planning to go chow on some Frosty Pizza, but we were too late!
