Question about 3M emblems etc...

Sorry never attached any type of decals to my car, if you buy the chrome-looking plastic emblems that attach with 3M. how hard are they to take off? Were not talking the GM hundred dollar autobot ones...

Relatively easy...heat gun or hair dryer, fishing line behind the emblem to loosen tape..., some orange oil based cleaner for residue

I didnt even use a heat gun. Some thin, sharp dental floss and some GooGone for cleanup and you are done. Takes a bit of clean up but not hard.

Depends on how old they are and how cold the area is to start with. In any case you should at least heat the area up a bit to be extra careful. Ask the small spot of bare metal on my passenger side rear 1/4 panel where I didn't heat my side molding up enough when I took it off. Not a big deal for me because I was beginning prep for new paint anyway, but I know if I had a 5th gen and damaged my paint because I was too lazy to take the <5 minutes to hit the area with a little heat I'd be more than a tad pissed. A hair dryer is generally good enough. Hell if its hot out maybe even just pull the car in the sun for a while.
