Easiest way to remove door badges.

What is the easiest way to remove the door badges? Thinking about going with a different look and if I don't like it, I'll get custom ones made. Thanks guys.

Heat & fishing line as well as patience and a buffer

I found that heat makes the adhesive a bit messy.


I did one with heat and one without, the one without heat was quite a bit easier.

And yeah, the fishing line trick. Take a piece of fish line 10-20# sould be fine, double it over and twist it. You use that like a little "finger saw", get it started behind the badge and saw away.


After the badge is off there'll be a mess of left over adhesive, I tried a couple things to get it off. I had the best luck with a small plastic scraper and plenty of goof off. Just make sure you wash and wax after you're done, I'm sure that goof off strips the wax away like none other.

I did fishing line, with no heat. Just cut the adhesive with the line and started pushing the old adhesive around with my thumb until it balled up and started peeling it off, it was fairly easy and I did not have to use any chemicals at all.

I just got a grip on the edge of the badge. Both pulled off cleanly and you can't tell where they go since I cleaned up the truck.

I wouldn't suggest heat. But fishing line all the way. If you choose to do heat get the wife/girlfriends hair dryer and go at it that way. A heat guy and you can mess somethings up. I also want to say I seen something like a big eraser off of a pencil that you can put on your drill that will help with the glue. Just can't remember what its called.

Hope this helps

Are you talking about the fender badges like where is says F-250? or we talking about the Diesel badges? I want to do this too, but I have a question? Does it leave like any holes behind? or do they just come off and leave nothing but glue behind? I have an Excursion...
