Okay gotcha, I have plenty of similar stuff laying around. Sounds easier than ultra-careful x-acto action lol. I've got some bamboo kabob skewers I might start off with

your emblems will be a bit of a bitch if they are not stuck flush to the car. It took me three tries and they are still not perfect. Toothpick is defiantly helpful though

i tried mine monday. put 3 nice coats on and went to peel off the stuff around and inside the letters with a tooth pick. its hard to get a cut all the way through. thought i had it but it pulled off half the s so i had to pull it all off.
