best to let them sit in the sun for a while.. spray with goo-gone or something like that.. I used a plastic scraper thing to get it up, but others have gotten fishing line behind the badge and worked the fishing line back and forth to cut thru the 3m tape.

I guess I'll use a plastic scraper tomorrow. I did try with a fishing line. No luck. It broke 3 times. The 370 had no problem coming off.

you need to use a stronger line. It will work and is less likely to scratch the paint.

+1.
This is a large-mouth bass son. Ain't no guppies here.

Let it sit in the sun then do the fishing line thing. Then use Goo-Gone. DO NOT use a lot of pressure with the Goo-Gone. Let it melt the gunk on its own or your paint will be fubarred.
