Yup exactly
After u cut thru the adhesive with the floss u should be able to get your fingers under an edge and pry off the emblems then just use 3M adhesive remover to get the sticky crap off.

removing badges

I found that a steam cleaner and dental floss worked awesome. and no petroleum based products ever hit my paint.
1- clean the area with soap and water
2- use steam cleaner steam to warm up 1 letter/# at a time (10-20 secs)
3- use dental floss to cut the # fom the adhesive using a sawing motion
4- use yur thumb...not yur nail to roll an edge of the adhesive
5- pull the adhesive away from paint. If done right it will all come off
6- re-apply steam to stubborn spots
7- wash and wax area
8- yur done

8) hope this helps

i have heard that the dental floss/hair dryer combo is best. hair dryer heats up the adhesive a little, so its easier to take off the emblem
