Default Door sill GXP emblem issues

In working on the detailing of my GXP, I've come across a small issue that I haven't figured out how to resolve.

Unfotunately, the road salt has gotten to the GXP emblems in both the driver'* and passenger'* door sills.

I was going to replace them (GM # 10385603), however, they are close to $60 each and really don't have an extra $120 for something more of an annoyance than a "need" (though as much as it annoys me, maybe it is a "need").

On top of that, the last time I checked, GM didn't have any available Nation-wide.

I was thinking about trying to refinish them, but I'm unsure if they are just stuck on with the ususal factory two-sided tape, or if they are actually bolted in.

Has anyone ever tried to removed them?

Anyone have any experience with these, or maybe have a side skirt off the car that can look from the inside to see if there are any retainers or fasteners sticking through?

Any info is appreciated.

Thanks,
Ken

The ones on eBay are the ones for the outside of the vehicle.

The ones I'm working on are the ones in the door sill. You only see them once the door is open.

I haven't seen any of those on eBay.

Pics? I've never seen any other GXP emblems on the car other than the outside. Of course I've never seen a GXP bonne in person either.
