Search braaa its all over

Some quality fishing line, goo gone, and a heat gun. Just like flossing.

Spray goo gone on and wait a good five minutes. Warm up with heat gun and floss away.

I'm pretty sure you mean de-badge... LOL just givin you sh*t. But yeah he's spot on. Fishing line, a heat gun, and goo-gone will do the trick. Or you can do what I did. I swapped decklids with another member, and it was already done. My lowrise decklid for his highrise decklid.

LOL "DEBAGE" it sounds french.

I knwo for sure Goo-Gone is safe for our cars. I used it when I took the pin striping off the sides of my car. It worked great. I don't know about any other adhesive removers that will not damage the paint. There are some out there but I don't know personally which ones are safe.
