I was wanting to remove my "camry" and "se" emblems off my trunk to have a clean look and making it easier to clean. I hate the wax gun that gets stuck in the nooks. What is the safest way to take these off?

i think the best way is to use a fishing line... even if it leaves some sticky stuf left over, grab a cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol and rub it away.. it worked like a charm for me
using a razer is just too risky

Heat gun or hair dryer, with some dental floss/fishing line... comes right off. Then buy some goo-be-gone at Walmart to wipe off any glue.

try not to use a heat gun if u never used one. good way to ruin the car. What i did was take some Goo Gone (u can find it in target, Walmart, even CVS). Pour some goo gone on the back of the emblem and run fishing line through it. If any residue is left, use a soft rag and place goo gone on it and rub it in a bit and it should come off. Once you're done wash the parts that had goo gone with some soap and water (might as well do it before a car wash). And you're done.

To make things easier, let ur car's trunk face the sun for a while and that way you won't need a hair dryer or heat gun. I did mine in October and there was no residue left and i didn't leave my car in the sun. it shouldn't be an issue.

Goo-Be-Gone is your friend.

+1. Worked fine for me. Then some Goo Gone and you're good.

I did mine within a week of picking up my car, meaning the badges had only been on there for 2-3 weeks tops.

I used a credit card and goo gone, then waxed the spots.

I wanted to do something else but couldn't cover up the hole.

I don't mind the Toyota symbol when it is small but when it gets to 4-5" across it is big and ugly.

52 isn't bad either for this time of year when temp is supposed to be 40.
