I used fishing line to get the actual emblems off..then a 3M "eraser wheel" to get off all the remaining residue.

I hate using any kind of chemicals on my paint, but some people use goo-gone or similiar type products and had good luck as well.

Goo gone works good and its safe for the paint. I got baked on tree sap off my truck with it...and a lot of elbow grease

Oh for sure it works! But once you use the eraser wheel....you will never go back!

I hear you there!

I bought one..used it for awhile when I replaced my emblems & removed the "EDGE" decals from my truck. Then went right back afterwards and bought two additional ones just to have on hand!

the holes will be left there once you debage the truck, the best way to fill these holes is to use this stuff called "fibertech" then use your nomal bondo/hardner mix and sanding, I had excellent luck pluggin the holes, it looks as if there were never any emblems at all
