    Piece of cake. Hair dryer, pull the badge off (get a bit of string behind it to help pull it off), use t-cut or similar to remove any residue.

    Job's a good 'un.

    Pics when done

    i took my griffin badge off today, boiled a kettle of water and kept pouring on to heat glue. Then used old credit card to get behind it to pull off. Only badge was off kept pouring hot water and picking at it until all glue was off, then tcut'd and colour magic'd the area and you couldnt tell it had been there at all. Cant see much in pic with light
