what are you going to do about the recess? ive always removed them with a spatula, but it may be a bit hard in that position. heat lamp maybe?

just use some prepsol to remove the left over glue but make sure you re wax it where you used it as it will leave the paint unprotected. as for the recess i did the same to my ea and just left the recess there but after a while it got to me so i bogged it and painted it. another alternative is to find an EB bonnet that is the same colour as your car.

Usually the badge comes off and the black foam stuff stays there. Use some sort of solvent to get the rest off.

I've always used fishing line to take 'em off, doesn't have any shape edges to scratch... nice and smooth...
