BMW Emblems & Other Chrome

Does anyone know if the BMW Emblems and other chrome plastic trim attached to body panels is affixed with adhesive, pinned, snapped, or screwed from behind.

Reason, going to pull apart to re-paint all plastic. Going to de-badge and not re-apply any stickers, only going to keep major chrome pieces intact with new paint job.

Thanks in advance for comments

Re: BMW Emblems & Other Chrome

Most of the big fairing trim is held on from the rear by small, stamped metal, nuts. The saddle bag trim is glued on, heat and dental floss will slice it off. The rest are decals and sick on trim.
