    I have a very old x metal soft vault, it serves my x metals very well for almost 4 years and it think it is time for him to retire, :) or use it for a smaller sunglasses because the upper and lower lip are not align anymore and the the zipper is a bit damage.

    I am thinking of removing the emblem, have it plated and use it as a key chain.

    Anyone knows how to properly remove the emblem? I'm bit worried that i might damage the soft vault.

    I dont think the emblem would be strong enough to use as a key chain,

    The logo probably has a couple studs and is flat on the back. I have an M Frame case with the logo falling off and it's nothing that I'd like to have as a keychain.

    Most of the new ones are plastic. I have an old one and it's metal. Work it from the back it is riveted in and if you cut the rivets it will come off....
