how to remove emblems 66 mustang

Ok I look under the hood and the letters have these metal ring instead of screws, so how do I remove the letters but most importantly, how do I remove the rest of the emblems? do I just pull hard on these things? I'm getting ready to paint the car and I need to take everything off.
thank you

Heat gun! You can spend more time and use a hair dryer. I accidentally removed an emblem off my car with easy off oven cleaner when I was removing one shot pin striping off my car. The easy off is safe on my paint, I'm not sure on a ~50 yr old paint job but if your going to repaint I don't see any reason to worry. Let the easy off sit on it for about 5 minute intervals and pry up gently, then wash off with water and reapply. The water is just to neutralize so it doesn't constantly work but you very well don't need to wash it off.

If the side emblems are original pin style, they should just pull off the fenders and you'll need new plastic anchors to re-install.

I've always used a heat gun while de-badging a vehicle. You can also use fishing string, usually it'll cut through the tape used on the backside.

I used a flathead screwdriver and a rag underneath to remove mine, just kept working them slowly. After the car is painted, I would go with the Scott Drake adhesive backed emblems to replace them, they worked better for me than the original style. Good luck!

He's working on a 1966 I think. The clips are called barrel clips. The emblems do pry off just be careful not to gouge the metal. Don't worry about the paint since you are repainting. You can get new clips from NPD or CJ Pony Parts (among a hundred other online parts places). Yours will probably be rusted and useless.

This is a 66 they did not use tape then they had real emblems.

When you rebadge it Scott drake has some that have both adhesive and the pins use those to secure it to the body without having to worry about alignment there really simple to put on though taking them off will require a heat fun AND a screw driver lol

If you replace with new, get the pins again, they line up as original and the clips are like 0.15 or 0.25 cents each.
