The "powerstroke" badge on the doors can be removed no problem. The F-250/350 badges on the fenders will be a little different. They come off fine but there are holes, 3 I think, behind the badge. These would need to be filled and painted.

To remove, I took a piece of fishing line, 20# test I think, doubled it and twisted, I used this as a "saw". I started working the line behind the badge until I could get my fingers behind the badge and slowly pull it right off. The adhesive is a pain to get off. I tried heat, plastic scraper, lighter fluid, and goof off, the goof off worked thee best IMO.

I did the same thing, only I used nail polish remover.

Oh, yeah! I tried nail polish remover too, I'd still recommend goof off.


Edit - Now that I write it all down, maybe I just had so many chemicals on that crap that it had no chance

if you plan on removing any future emblems, you can buy a wheel that fits in a drill, it's like a rubber and its made for removing adhesive, I bought mine at carquest for $40 it was well worth the money for how easy it is to remove the adhesive

So the F250 emblem on the fender has holes behind it with no rivets? I just want to be clear before i go trying to peel them off. I took rubber strips off of the bottom of my 04's doors this weekend. I am thinking about removing the powerstroke badges and repainting them. Also i might either swap out the F-250 or just replace them with the international badges. I haven't decided yet.

3M makes an eraser that works well for removing just about anything that is stick on. It's the one you put in a drill just don't push to hard on it and break it. Had a friend do that and now has some paint work to do.
