I've used 3M adhesive remover several times for a similar purpose. It's badass, but it's about $8 or so from any parts store.

HAHAHA I love how you added the picture. Good work Mike as usual. Btw whenever you want to run by the house and polish the cobra for me your more than welcome.

I would try Goo Gone and floss before going to heat, especially if those inserts are made of metal. Not only will the heat damage the paint, but that polyurethane bumper won't like it either, and I'm sure you know how metal holds heat. I pulled the badges off my car using just floss (fishing line works too, doesnt break as easily) and then taking the residue off with goo gone. It took maybe 15-20 minutes for both rear emblems.

Using heat in the RIGHT WAY will not damage your paint.

Using a low/low-med setting to unset the piece, and not a high setting that will bake it is the key.
