good question. Might wanna try just your fingernail and grabbing the ege of it and just atking your time. You might also could try some adhessive remover to break the bond or at least lubricate it to make it easier to comeo ff.

you might run into a problem depending on how long the vinyl has been on the paint.

If its been on for awhile you could have some nice paint fade on the rest of the car and under the vinyl could be a brighter shade of your paint.

Heat gun, adhesive remover.

Removed some vinyl stickers off a vette once and it was a pain. Took a wheel to it to remove the remains and it turned out great. Clayed and polished after I was done and looked brand new.

Good luck.

For emblems...heat gun/fishing line on two blocks like a cheese cutter. Works great, and then remove the remains of the adhesive.
