Badge removal

Hi guys,

I want to remove the "focus" and "se" letters from my hatch. What do you guys use to do it? and also without scratching the paint.

I hate the way the dirt/wax collects around it. My car is black, so it stands out.

Thanks
Craig

Some forego the heat and use goo-gone and fishing line.

I went with a heat gun and fishing line. Then I used warm soapy water and a microfiber cloth to remove the residue. Make sure you wax the area when you're finished.

I just used a small flat head screw driver, apply light pressure on the corner of letter and pulls right off...can roll up the adhesive with your fingers...and you're done.
