Removing 5.0 emblems?

One of the emblembs was "missing" from my '88 5.0 when I got it. There is
no apparent paint damage but there is some hard black residue probably from
the adhesive from the emblem.

I would prefer to just remove that residue and and also remove the emblem
from the other side and have none. Any ideas what the best paint friendly
thing to use to remove the black residue?

And also, whats the best way to remove the emblem that is still on the car?

Worst case some paint comes off and I just put the 5.0 back on and have 5.0
emblems.

Thanks,
--C

Take a hairdryer and use it to heat up the emblem to make the adhesive
more pliable. Then take a length of dental floss, or fine wire, and
using a sawing motion use it to slice through the adhesive. It takes a
little time but it will work. You might need to reheat the emblem a few
time during the process. Then use an adhesive cleaner to remove what
remains on the paint.

Something like goo-gone is safe for painted surfaces?

Re: Removing 5.0 emblems?

I always use good old fashioned Lighter Fluid. Even paint thinner aka
mineral spirits will work
DO NOT USE LACQUER THINNER
but lighter fluid dissolves it nicely with absolutely no harm to surrounding
surfaces.
Use a paper towel or a good terry cloth rag to rub it as it softens.
