They are all held on with double sided tape. On a hot day, just start pealing them off with a credit card or some fishing line. For the excess glue, use some WD40, goo gone, or some bug and tar remover.

You can also use a blow dryer to substitute a hot day.

easy... people say to use dental floss to pull it off from behind... thats HOG WASH.. just grab and pull... they aren't through the metal just some sticky glue pull them all off the side stripes, logos (badges) all of it.. you will have some sticky glue left over use the bottom of your shoe ya it sounds wierd but works the best... in a rolling moting like your rolling doughe get the glue off will take a little elbow greeze, as for the left over glue residue... put some WD 40 on a rag and rub it off... wash... wax... SHINE!!!!

to take off the badges I just used some fishing line and than used my fingers to get the adhesive off with some adhesive remover. Cannot even tell they were on there. Afterwards just a wash to the area and area's where the adhesive remover got and than waxed
