first off i am not trying to be a dick here but in my opinion its stupid to take badges off an ss. its like a status symbol, lol. i understand the whole sleeper idea if thats what your going for but people dont really care if it says ss or not, every civic and their mom will try to race you know matter if you have badges or not. you could have a badge that says 1k hp and people in dumb cars will try to race you. anyway thats my opinion, but if you want to take them off i believe they are just held on by the 3m style tape, if they are its easy just carefully peal. what i would do is go to a body shop and have them do it. it shouldnt take them more then a few minutes but the idea is if the car gets scratched in the process they are responisble for the damage. if you damage it your just stuck

fishing line, wax and a hairdryer (optional)
Take the fishing line and carefully saw it in a back and forth motion from one side to the other. The rear bowtie has a lot of adhesive so it takes the longest.
Once you get them off, use the wax to remove any leftover residue.

Just dont use any fingernail polish remover! It can damage the paint.

reach behind the grill and you'll feel two plastic studs, the bolts (not sure what they are really called) come off with a 10mm I believe.
