[SIZE="3"]Step 2, make sure not to heat for to long or the badge will begin to melt, i recommend about 30 seconds. Once the glue behind the badge is melted, place the dental floss behind the badge and move it in a back in forth motion. This will remove the badge and the end result should look like this.[/SIZE]

[SIZE="3"]You will find that it is very difficult to remove the glue from the letters, there are many solutions to this problem such as goo gone, starting fluid, soapy water, and also the heat gun, fingering the excess glue also helps but be careful not to get blisters![/SIZE]

[SIZE="3"]After a while it will eventually all be off, and you will be ready to stand back and admire your gorgeous wrx![/SIZE]
