5th gen PRELUDE emblem on rear bumper.

My PRELUDE emblem is super glued on rear bumper, is there a way to remove it w/o repainting the rear bumper? I bought the car like that. thanks.

IMO i would use wax and grease remover instead of laquer thinner just because laquer will eat thru your clear coat/base coat if u use to much or rub with it for to long where as wax and grease remover wont

Use a hair dryer if you don't have a heat gun, works just about the same, just takes longer.

Stuff called "goo gone" works great for getting off that sticky glue and wont harm your paint.
