Wouldn't it have been easier to pull it off with a small dent puller?

It looks like you nicked the paint with the screwdriver. I would put a couple of drops of touch-up paint on those marks, just to seal the paint. Moisture could get trapped under the badge and lead to rust over time. The new badge looks good.

Gaaahh! Did you nick the paint underneath? I would have had to touch that up before I put the new badge on, or else it would have kept me awake at night, tossing and turning...

It's like a miniature plunger with a metal handle and a locking function.
They cost less than $10 at most auto stores, and are truly useful if you get a dent that hasn't broken the paint, or have to lift something slick.
