Badge removal

Is there any way special to remove the badges on the back of a ZX5? how are they mounted? I would like a "Clean" look on the back but I don't know of an easy way to get them off.

goo-off (or a similar adhesive removal product)and dental flossdont use any kind of rag that will scratch the paint, u could also heat it with a heat gun or blow dryer to make it easier

Yea, I'm thinking of doing this as well. I can move the letters around with my fingers so I don't think they are attached that well.

Welcome I also used the blow dryer and floss method it works very well. When your dun you'll want to polish and wax your car to get the residue off. Good luck man!

WD-40 takes off the goo without harming the paint . And yup, the hair dryer , floss and wax work too. Done a few.
