Relocating the "S" logo

I want to remove the "S" logo on the side of the fuel tank cover and put it on the chassis below. How can I remove it? Do I just pry it off, or is it screwed on from underneath the plastic cover?

Then I'd like to apply some pin striping on the tank or have a local artist come up with something. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Some of us use a heat gun and there are release agents that help.
I've used dual stripe strips on my BMW for that classic look.
Have you considered flame decals for effect?
After repainting my Wee I got custom made Horned Toad decals to replace the big S.

The S is just glued on. I removed mine last week with the help of a heat gun and dental floss. The logo came off pretty easy and I didn't need any chemicals to get the rest of the glue residue off, just worked it off while still warm with my fingers.

I then found a place online that prints custom vinyl stickers and takes small orders (stickylife.com) - got 4 3" diameter circle custom stickers for about $20 total.

Might be hard to get it to stick again. Took mine off, I donít like badges. Took them off my truck to. Heat works good. But when I took my S off, it came apart.
