Just as Herb said.

Get a blow dryer (or heat gun) and start to heat up the emblem. I would then use fishing line or dental floss (as some have suggested) to help separate the glue from the GT emblem and the fender body. Any residual glue can be removed with the light application of Goof Off and a little elbow grease.

as said, run some painters tape around them to protect the paint, heat the emblem up and use fishing line to get under and and slowly run it down to pull the sticky off, then after its off roll what you can off with your finger. For the final sticky crap wax will take it off (eventually)

Never done it. Just a common question and I'm familiar with the procedure.
