more heat and paint thinner, then you'll have to rewax the car when you're done.

why paint thinner that sounds like a bad idea to me only cause im not a body guy i dont know the tricks it seems like everyday i make a little progress on this glue just want it all gone for the american muscle car show in aug im so pumped to be in that show:bigthumbsup
also would i need to clean buff then polish then wax?

A heat gun gets hot enough that it will melt the paint off the car if you're not careful. Paint thinner won't hurt the cured paint, it'll just strip every bit of wax off the car. I've had to use it multiple times.

The 281 badges came from autobadges.com, but after 2 years, they're faded out now.

I just used the hair dryer and then rubbing alcohol. Done it a couple of time with good luck.

I'm sure it would be ok as long as it didn't sit and was quickly wiped off, but there is no way I would ever allow WD-40 anywhere near paint that I cared about. That stuff is dangerous and should only be used on paint when vandalizing something.
