is it easy to take the ses off? or is there repainting involved?

The car was painted from the factory before the FOCUS letters and SES badge was put on.

A strong fishing line or small plastic pry bar. Just start with one corner and gently pry up. The gunk that's left that held the pieces on can be gently rubbed off with WD-40 or an adhesive softener like "Goo Gone" from a hardware store. GO easy, be gentle, take your time. Some good wax when your done.

Caution. If your car is a few years old, the paint under the letters and badge might be newer looking that the rest of the trunk. Just do one letter and see how it matches the trunk.

I saw that. I also tried looking to see where it comes out in the engine compartment to see where it would come out but there's too much "stuff" in the way to see. It's only one small wire so I was trying to see if it would go through the firewall where the hood release is. Didn't get up there yet. That's where i ran a couple wires through on my PT Cruiser.

Now that you said that, at lease I know I wont' hit anything where the clutch went. Thanks.

A hair dryer helps when trying to debadge. I used a hair dryer, floss, and Goo Gone. I took my time and used my fingernails to remove as much of the adhesive before using the Goo Gone. Once they were heated up from the hair dryer, removing the letters with the floss was quite easy. The only pain is getting all the adhesive off.
