The same thing holding it on. 3M double sided tape. I think you can get it at any autoparts store.

Many people say use a head gun and fishing line to pull it off. Don't let the heat gun get to close and there are also 2 alignment tabs on the back of the F-250/350 badge. The powerstroke badges don't have any alignment tabs. After you get them off you'll want to you some sort of adhesive removal to get the left over gunk. I used 3M adhesive removal, it's like a lacquer thinner.

How did you patch the alignment holes? I'm trying to avoid welding in hopes to not have to repaint the entire fender. Any ideas?

these guys are removing and reinstalling the badges after they remove the painted areas from the chrome so they don't need to address the holes.


seems like they could just leave them on and use a q tip to clean the paint off ?
