lets play beer pong!
hi im synapse and my quest is to remove my rear emblems what is the best way and will save my finish
Ouch! I did it like Brad did, used the wife's blowdryer and waxed dental floss. Most of the adhesive will roll off by rubbing it gently while it's warm with your finger. Finished up with bug and tar remover, polish and wax. Less than half an hour to do both emblems, and no scratches!Dew said:just as a reminder, for the love of god do NOT use paper towels to clean up residue from the area. I did my "xB" badge and had a friend help me (not bright with cars, not a good idea) I got the badge off and walked away with it. Came back and he was wiping the area to clean the tape off with paper towels. Scratched the CRAP out of the paint. So I had to put graphics over the space I wanted blank or else it was a scratched up cloudy space where the xB used to be.
That's nice of you and I know you won't charge. But you know, I gotta learn how to do this stuff. LOL!! This shouldn't be too hard and I think it would be kinda fun to do. I like these DIY articles and information especially since I am really getting into this modding thing now.squirrel said:Tammie,
If my right hand and arm was strong enuff, I'd do it right now for you. And NO, I wouldn't charge my friends for doing a simple mod like that either. Heck, I've done suspension changes in my driveway or their driveway and not charged anyone.
Oh yeah, forgot that part.........short bus said:just rip them off like a bandaid i swear it wont hurt rub left overs off with finger watch out for blisters on fingers

Yeah, as soon as I found out that there were no alignment holes behind them they were gone.squirrel said:That was the third or fourth mod I did to the xB. First two I did around the corner from the dealership on the way to work. I pulled the dealer paper plates and license plate frame off, and peeled off the registration from the lower windshield corner. Then it was the tint the third day I owned thae car, so the debadge must have been fourth, followed by springs and wheels.
