Default Removing Door Emblems

I want to remove the P/T Cruiser emblems from the doors and the Limited Edition from the Hatch.
I am looking for opinions on the best way to do this without damaging the paint.
My thoughts are a hair dryer and plastic razor blade then some goo gone to clean up the adhesive residue.

fishing line or thin trimmer line. and, I would use a heat gun rather than a hair dryer.

I know a heat gun would work better but I'm not buying one for this one time project, maybe I can borrow one from someone.

no not removing the Chrysler badges just the PT Cruiser name.

The Retro Style needs a retro Model name.

Just as suggested earlier in this thread; I used fishing filament and a home hair-drier. Goo Gone took car of the residue. I think I still have the "PT"s.

The same technique worked on the harder job of removing the chrome ABS bumper trim. I needed stronger line for this.
