Another badge removal question

I want to take off my stock 5.0 badges and replace them with the gloss black ones I have. I have seen people say use fishing line and hair dryer and all that. But I live in an apartment on the second level. So I wouldn't be able to plug a hair dryer in. Suggestions or other ideas?

Before I took my GT to get its badges shaved off I pulled the badge off just by pulling on it. It left a lot of the adhesive on the fender so I had to scrub it off. I used some goo gone to break it up.

Should be able to remove with just fishing line without the haid dryer on a 13. I removed my side scoops by hand without fishing line. Then i just rolled the rest of the adhesive off with my finger.

This down here probably would work on the dealer badge too.

Tape up before you use the fishing line. Wear a pair of gloves and use a lot of thumb work to get the remaining 3M that is still on the Pony. Some rubbing alcohol or some that be gone BS will work. Although I have used that i'm always weary that it might take off some paint. It will just take time to do it without the hair dryer or something to heat it up.

Btw. As far using something to remove any adhesive residue i've found Tarminator from Stoner works the best. I got mine from Napa. However on a 2013 model it should all just roll off by using your fingertips. Don't try and pick it off. Actually roll it off using the pads of your thumbs or fingers. I took my side scoops without any tools with no problems. Caveman style.
