Badges should be easy to remove. Nothing but adhesive holds them on. The only concern when you get them off is that the paint may be a slightly different shade due to the elements fading the rest of the car slightly over the years.

I HIGHLY doubt there would be ANY color change, paints these day dont do that, i think you only concern would be what Haro has, is that the door was repainted at one point and the badge was only taped arouns and not taken off

Good point. I didn't realize Haro'* exact circumstances. I just brought up the color issue since I thought I remembered him mentioning a problem he had.
I say debadge it! I like the smooth sleeper look.

i used a screwdriver to take "Bonneville" off mine. i dont advise anyone else try it, though. it worked well for me because i was extremely careful and did it very slowly.

I just did the clear corners up front and will be debadging this week probably. I will let everyone know how it goes.
I will be trying a heat gun with fishing line and goo gone fore clean-up.
