Default Removing Emblems

I removed my factory emblems, but the sticky adhesive is still not coming off well. Are there any good techniques to remove this?

They sell something I've seen here at Advance, but I can't remember the name. It's made specifically for removing emblem adhesive, and they stock it right next to the waxes and polishes.

WD40 works fine for the sticky stuff.

Thanks y'all, I got the emblems off. But now the 2 small stripes that runs from the front to the back is hard to get off. I got the stripes off, but the adhesive isnt coming off with WD40 and hard scrubbing... dammit

use a heat blower as well to melt it a little. if i took mine of and used the PB Blaster brand adhesive remover with a heat gun and it all came off. It will require some elbow grease. I replaced mine with the newer Chrome ones that come on the 3rd Gen trucks

be sure to wax that area after you're all done...the googone removes all of the protection of wax.
