Use a hair dryer to soften the adhesive, then pass fishing line under the letters. Clean up w/ Goo Gone, you may need to follow up w/ a mild rubbing compound like Macguiars Ultimate compound if you have ghosting on the trunk.

I wouldn't

Use goo gone it's really hard on the clearcoat I would buy some wax and grease remover it's easier on the clearcoat I used goo gone on one of my cars hoods a long time ago and it made my clear come off after about 6 months

There's an automotive version of goo gone that's safer. Although I've used regular goo gone without issue. Can even use WD-40.

Only used goo gone a few times w/ auto finishes and never had a problem and it's been 3 years, but if indeed there have been issues w/ it, then by all means look for another product like the automotive version Epiphany mentioned. I DO know that Goof-off is way too harsh for auto finishes for sure.

Don't forget a few boxes of pampers for that "HOLY SH*T" moment when you think you ruined your car's paint.

Seriously though, google "debadge" and you'll get 1mil+ results, including utube vids.
