^^^^That's exactly what I was gonna say...with no front emblem it would be really hot to remove the two on the back!

Use the "orange" cleaner or Goo B Gone. Both work great.

To get the emblems off either wait for a sunny day and when they are warm use fishing line or dental floss to slide behind. They come right off.

Some have used a heat gun and a screwdriver with a towel covering it but your chances of scratching are higher that way.

You can use a combo of the heat gun and the dental floss, just be carefull to heat the emblem evenly so the paint doesn't bubble.

Good luck, post some shots when you're done!

Yeah, your emblems will come off really easy 'cause you box is new, you shouldn't have to use any heat unless it's cold where you live. In addition to the dental floss method (which I used), you can also use bug and tar remover to get the adhesive off. It's not abrasive, and some have wax in their formula (I used Turtle Wax Bug and Tar Remover), have fun.


BTW, love the wheels!! Now drop the bad boy!

The green is growing on me. Just like the looks of the box itself, I was not entirely thrilled about that green, but the more I see it the more it grows on me...lol

I would take the Bra off, all it's good for is screwing up the paint. If anything needs to be covered it's the bumper.

I am a bodyman, I see it happen alot.

I actually did not use any kind of heat. I went to advance and got a chemical for removing decals or stickers from bumpers bout $4. just sprayed it on and waited a few minutes. came off with all the silicone like glue.

Looks really good! I am in fact envious.

I agree about the bra, they don't seem to protect, and in my humble opinion it looks cleaner without.

Welcome!

Looks awesome - only suggestion I would make is to take the xB logo off your side window.
I would have to agree, looks tacky.
