    You need to join an image hosting site like photobucket, upload your image and use the supplied URL and just paste that in to the post.

    heat the badge with a hair dryer. use dental floss/fishing line to cut through the adhesive. Use tar & glue remover or petrol to remove the remaining adhesive residue.

    You could also heat it with hot water if you can't get a hairdryer out to the car.

    Or you could use a caramel wheel to remove the left over sticky.
