i actually took a heat gun and got it really hot, and then i tried the dental floss thing but it kept just melting. so i got out my plastic body work tools, and used one of the flat scrappers that i would use for bondo, and rubbed them off, then got the black goo hot, and peeled as much away as possible with the scrapper, but go very slow as u could scratch ur paint, thats why i used plastic i didnt have a problem, and then to remove the adhesive that was left i used carb cleaner and brake cleaner, it eat thru it really fast i just spray wipe scrub til til the towel wouldnt slide, then spray wipe scrub, and it all came off then i used soap and water to wash up the area to get the carb and brake cleaner off, i was going to leave the hemi badge but thought it would look stupid taking them all of but that one. i think when i get my new hood i'll order some to go on the side of the hood. and as i read on here dont take the center ram off the tailgate, the one by the handle. was told it isnt just glue that it has holes or something under it. idk for sure its what somebody said. and i wasnt going to try and prove them wrong lol. or right for that matter.
