Removing CAMARO lettering

Do you think I will cause any damage to the paint if I remove the badging for the side of the car ?

What would be the best way to do it ?

Just use dental floss or fishing line to cut through the adhesive holding them on and then use Goo-Gone or some sort of "safe for paint" adhesive remover to get the rest.

I am thinking about removing them because it is hard to wax between all the letters, plus maybe I would put SS emblems there instead

I was thinking about doing that too. I ordered a black 2SS/RS and was thinking about removing all the badging except the front grill bow tie (I was going to use black vinyl on that), I think it will add to a clean look. Plus, if you don't already know what the car is when you see it driving around then something is wrong with you.

A hair dryer on low also works well. Just don't get the paint too hot.

Better hope there are no holes in the fender like the mustang guys found out when they removed the GT emblem. Personally i would leave it alone its a nice touch to the car.
