Default Emblem removal / re-apply

Hi there,
I ordered some new overlays for my SSEi.
I will need to re-paint the edges of the emblems, 14 years hasn't been kind to them. :(
I am planning on removing the emblems, spray painting them gold, then applying the overlay.

What is the best way to remove without cracking them? I gently pulled on the drivers side one, and it cracked the "*"
After I am finished having my way with them, likely some adhesive remover on the door to get rid of the excess adhesive??

Is the 3-M Body double sided tape the best product to re-apply?

Thanks in advance,
Adam

just some dental floss and worked it behind the emblem. Try spraying some goo gone behind it too. That should do the trick.
