Vinyl Top Question - simple lol

Hi all,

I have decided I am going to do flex seal on my top. If this does not work I will delete it. Here is the question - how do I remove the Cadillac Fleetwood brougham badges on the rear pillars, set into vinyl the top? Any help is most appreciated!

Best I recall from 18 years back; pressed fit only. I deleted them "with prejudice" when doing my vinyl delete for 'ol FTSS. IDK what flexseal is, but deleting them and flushing the panels is a great look.

I really have hope for it - but if now, meh, I can delete it

Well I only bought one gallon, could have gone smaller (39.99 jug), but I wanted to ensure coverage as well as having some other projects I need seal up as well So I have been out 89.99 bucks so far. I think I am just going to mask off the side pillar emblems. Yes I will provide plenty of pictures of my mess
