Wait until the snow melts, use a heat gun and go slow.
Heat gun or even a hair dryer. Do not burn the paint, You only need to warm up the decal and it will peel off so do not get to close to the paint. I removed a Gt strip from a customers 67 that was not on straight but the shop that did the paint installed the strip before the paint was cured and it peeled the paint up in a couple of spots. Easy fix but took a lot more time to repair it.
It's a supercharged hairdryer. Hotter than a hair dryer, cooler than a heat gun. I use one all the time in my garage. Even bought a heat gun, and this one is my go to heat gun for 95% of the hot air work I need.
Come in great for spray painting those small parts for the car too. Heat them up, paint, and dry with this.

1995 GT convertible - Black (Son's ride)
1966 GT Fastback under restoration- Code T Red
with White LeMans stripes.
Heat gun or hair dryer is the magic tool, but be careful to pull the decal backwards over itself, parallel with the car as you remove it, do not pull straight up as this will multiply the liklihood of paint damage/pull up.
I have a small can of "bumper sticker remover" that I picked up at Advance auto yrs ago. It works great to clean up any residue left behind just as "goo-gone" will and its safe for the paint. "WD-40" will work too, as it is a fish-oil based formula if you have that laying around... (Water Displacement, 40th formula tried. Google it, it's interesting!)
