for the badges, i used some dental floss and slowly sawed away, then used a rag with WD-40 to take off the adhesive. If the stickers are on a painted part of the car, i'd get a heat gun or good blow dryer and SLOWLY peel away. Again WD for the Adhesive removal.

Yes a heat gun is perfect for stickers. for me the badges I use fishing line. itss better because its stronger and I use goo gone not WD-40

umm it might. Just be careful with it. The glue will melt way before the paint. just don't hold the gun in one spot the whole time and hold it back enough of a distance.

LOL . That works. Just use your common sense with it and you'll be fine. Also sent you directions on the other thread to the meets.

yes the heat gun will definitely melt away the paint....just take your time and work it slowly. use the lowest setting on the gun.

here is a good video I used and it worked fine.. Just be sure that when you pull the badge off you pull it straight and a corner doesnt go into the paint.. or it will chip.

ps.. use fishing line.. and goo gone.

I'll pay for a re paint if it screws it up.. we'll he was right.. worked great and no problems. and again BE carful pulling them off.. I didn't fully heat the S and it didnt come right off. and while going behind it.. the corner put a pin head size chip in the paint.. no bigge but can be easily avoided.. good luck

hmmm... that I am not sure about. you could look on ebay or something. Maybe have one custom made? the hole is not huge.. it's like a peg that goes in there.. but with nothing it would have to be filled.. a lot of guys try and trade with 04-05 guys.. because of that though.. frustrating stuff.

EDIT: actually I believe that there is an oval indent as well as the peg hole.
