most people are saying to use a teeth/tooth floss (or whatever u spell it) or even fishing line. once it's off use wax to clean the area.

about the other thing i don't even know what u mean.

my english still sucks as u can see but u get the idea.

if they are the kind that are held on with tape then I recommend you use a hair dryer to heat up the whole area and get the glue soft... then you use dental floss to get the badge off... then use something like goo-gone to remove the residue, then make sure to put a couple layers of wax over the area.

better pin striping is painted on, not stickers. so you cant just peel this off.
