They are kinda a gum rubber wheel that you put in a drill, similar to a sanding flap wheel but not abrasive. They're pretty cheap and work awesome on vinyl stickers both on paint and glass, takes the sticker and glue off in one shot. I've bought them at autoparts stores that also sell paint supplies (not just spray paint, but places that sell like dupont, ppg, comercial/professional type paint and supplies). I think the last one I bought was called a pinstripe eraser.

The "eraser wheels" work well from what I hear.

I used goo gone and a little elbow grease to remove the adhesive behind the badges. Heat seemed to just make it more messy. FYI, the fender badges and tailgate badge have aligment holes, in the fender/tailgate, so you would have to have them filled/painted
