Removing Rear Badges

Want to swap out the rear "Protege5" badge. Is it like a Miata where there are pins and I have to take apart the whole rear hatch or are they 3M taped on?
Thank you!
(See? I warned everyone I'd have a lot of questions..)😋

There are pins.

Which is stupid because you've got holes through the hatch that feeds in salty water and destroys your hatch.


Tape would have been a better idea.

The side/door moldings are just stuck on.

You heat them up with a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the glue then remove the residue.

Yeah, but as soon as you remove them you're going to get your door dinged in a parking lot.
Murphy's law. Lol

The body looks pretty straight tho, a body guy could have a heyday with the amount of dings I've got
 
My personal goal is to keep it looking like shyte... But it will (eventually) kick-ass against Dodge-boys
and the like... *Wink-Wink*
