    Easy.

    Let it sit in the hot sun for a while or heat with a hair dryer. Then peel away. Scrape away the excess and clean with rubbing alcohol. Replace with new emblem.

    Use a hair dryer to warm it up. Take a piece of dental floss and work it behind the emblem. Keep it warm and use a sawing motion to work from one edge to the other. Remove therest of the adhesive with Goo-Gone. Finish up with Meguiars paint cleaner.
    Hope this helps!

    by the books =)

    when it came down to it i always used my fingernail to work an edge up... peeled it back parallel to the surface.... poured some goo gone gel on a cotton rag and wiped it off.... hit it with some detailer spray afterward.

    I just finished putting real 69 Camaro SS emblems on my car and it was the first time (that I have heard or seen) It turned out AWESOME so ill have some pics up soon but for me the stock SS emblems came off real easy.....I did the method everyone else just said but after i heated it up and got it started they pretty much peeled right off ( I STILL RECOMMEND YOU USE THE DENTAL FLOSS ALL THE WAY DOWN SO YOU DON'T MESS UP THE PAINT!) but otherwise pretty much a standard process like the other guys said
