How to remove the hood emblem

It has that grille with the Impala SS logo but how do I remove the old Caprice emblem on the hood?

And fill in the hole and paint it? Maybe I should take it to a body shop, what's a reasonable price?

if you dont have a big enough socket, you can use a pair of needle nose and as far as covering the hole I used a silver GM badge off the newer chevy trucks (It's the badge thats located on the front fenders).

X2 on the pic,
i have the same badges from the newer gms, i got the bigger ones but there still not big enough to cover the hole.

She has a few years on her, has gone under the knife for a couple nice enhancments and loves to wear nice shoes. her backside is bigger than most not everbodys cup of tea but but im a freak that way. she aint one of these young fillys or asian gals putting around town pretending to be cool cause there a newer make and model, like to make noise and only drink the premium. she's more of a family gal. but even then, she still gets all the compliments and knows how to make an entrance.

I can sell it, I don't need it.

How do I fill in the hole? Fiberglass, how do I do that? and how do I paint it?
