Thinking about dyeing my vinyl top this week, just need to know the best / easiest way to remove the emblems on the sides.

Are they attached with double sided tape, glue, or with fasteners from behind?

You need to take a thin flat-head screw driver or a small knife and gently pry the emblems off. Alternate around the wreaths and crests and make sure you don't pull one side out too far. Sometimes, one of the pegs will break off, but the emblem is still usable as long as the other peg is still intact.

If they're on with double sided tape, you can "saw" through the tape with dental floss, and remove what's left with adhesive remover.

the vinyl top emblems have posts on the backside. do as sven said and you should be fine.

Removing the ones with the tape takes a lot of finger strength and a little persistence.
