from MY experience, the adhesive left from the badges is a P I T A to remove. i used a mixture of wd-40 and elbow grease . before i took them off, i used blue painters tape to keep the alignment, and then a hairdryer to heat them up. i'm sure there's better methods, think some have suggested an attachment for a drill made by 3M that removes the stuff pretty good. but it was worth the effort. much easier to keep the newer badges clean too.

Go to your local automotive paint store and ask them for a adhesive eraser wheel for your drill. It is a rubber wheel that will not hurt your paint, but will take the adhesive right off.

Use a piece of nylon string or fishing line to "saw" through the old tape. I prevents scratches, and potential heat damage. Remove remaining adhesive as mentioned above.

Do this and add goofoff to the mix. I used heat the first time and it just made everything messier.

Just take a long piece of monofilament, double it over and twist it, then "saw" behind the badge until you can pul it away with your fingers then SLOWLY peel it right off. Slowly pull the adhesive off (sometimes it'll peel right off, leaving almost nothing behind) Then squirt some goof off on a rag and rub away, the crap will pretty much "melt" off.

I tried heat, WD-40, a plastic scraper, and LOTS of elbow grease the first time............ WAY TO MUCH WORK, imho.


Oh.... and I already gave my badges away, SORRY.
