Angry My Badges are Peeling



The F350 badges on the sides of my 6 month old truck are starting to peel

I have seen other trucks with peeling badges, but I just thought that the owner had hit them too close with the spray gun at the car wash, but I guess not. I guess the paint is just lousy and cheap

I don't really want to strip all the paint off and go with the chrome look, and if I get Ford to replace them they will put the same quality on, so I don't know what to do.

Any of you folks had this issue come up? What did you do?

Nope you are the first. I chromed mine out and then I got touch up paint to match my body paint. Then I painted the F-250 Superduty lettering to match the color of my body. It looks good.

Ive never seen that before, but my body side molding started to fall off. I just used some yellow weather strip adheisive from 3m and it seems to be working pretty good.

The badge isn't falling off the black paint that is on the badge is what is peeling.

I had the same thing happen to my '05... I just had the dealer replace them, there was no charge. But I traded it off for the one I have now and haven't had the same problem with my '06. The dealership told me last year when I had them replaced that it was a common problem at that time.

I stripped mine with accetone, but really didn't like the big chrome rectangle. So I decided to paint the lettering that really makes it stand out now. Has true blue metallic letters with chrome background. I left my powerstroke badge on the door chrome though because the letters are to small to paint.

I did something totally different. As BC has seen, my truck no longer has badges!!

I decided to debadge it, and leave it nude!!!

Gonna have to have some holes filled and do a little bit of painting.. but after 5 years and over 130K miles.. it's do for that anyway!!
