heat gun
plastic putty knife
patience
once it was off, the remaining glue was rubbed off with rubbing alcohol on a cotton cloth. then the car was washed.

took around 3 minutes to heat it up and peel it off slowly. don't hold the heat gun too close either. you don't want the glue to get TOO soft so it makes a mess.

Hair dryer would probably work, but you'd have to hold it on high heat for much longer.

Easiest way i've done it...... just take a piece of wire/fishing line and just slide it behind..... takes no time..... and like was mentioned above, just wipe the remaining glue with alcohol

^ thats true. I've used fishing line on another car before as well. Just saw it back and forth. too bad I didn't think of that when I debadged years ago.

took it off, dyed it with a fabric dye and a brush. afterwards it was a bit stiff. had to take another brush after it dried and ran it across to loosen up the fibers. it's been around a year with the dye and no problems.. still pitch black, but not as pimp looking as suede.

Do what Dildomatic said, or use dental floss.
