Okay, I just finished swapping badges. Here's a quick rundown of what I did.

First, I used a steamer used for pressing suits (I know what you're thinking but it worked great). I used the steamer to loosen the adhesive and get some steam in there.

After about 20 minutes, I used two old credit cards to pry the badge off. It popped off pretty easily and the pins didn't brake off. I had a buddy to help me. This project could be done with one person but it's definitely easier with two people.

I then used the steamer to loosen the remaining adhesive and peel it off. After I took off all I could, I used a paper towel and rubbing alcohol to get as much off as possible. I couldn't get all of it off but it was good enough.

Once it was dry, I stuck the new one on and that's it. All the pics are for reference.
