diy removing the badges

no idea where else ot put this..

Step One
Cut off about a 1 foot piece of fishing line. Wrap the ends around your index fingers so that there is about 6 inches left in between, and you can pull the line tight.
StepTwo
Slide the line behind the badge you wish to remove. Slide the line up and down behind the badge to saw through the badges backing material. If the material is hard to saw through, you may wish to heat it with a hair dryer to soften it up a bit. This is optional - I didn't find a need for it.
Step Three
Saw back and forth until you have made you way all the way to the other side of the badge. The badge should then fall off.
Step Four
Now you will be left with a mess off goo and backing material still on the car. Time to break out the Goo Gone.
Step Five
Spray the remover on the remains of the badge and let it soak in for a minute. Then get out the Plastic scraper and carefully scrape off the remaining material. Even though you are using plastic, you still must be careful not to gouge or scratch the paint.
Step Six
Now that you have the majority of the material removed, there will still probably be a distinct outline of where the badge was. Polish it up using some cleaner wax. Cleaner wax is basically regular wax with some slight abrasives in it to remove contaminants, remove scratches and polish the paint.
Complete!
That's it. After a few coats of wax, you should barely (if at all) be able to tell that there was a badge there. Now its time to do the rest of those badges! Have fun

skiboard is on a distinguished road
Nono that's hard way
Easy way is to:
use a hair dryer to heat up the badges
when it gets hot enough, you can just take it off with your nails
wax it if you need to

exactly what I did...heat up the badges with a hair dryer until they're pretty warm and you could kinda move them with your fingers...take a screwdriver and wrap a towel around it so it wont scratch and pull them off. Then I was able to take most of the 'gunk' off by heating it up and scratching it off with my fingernails. The I just used windex to get rid of the outline the gunk made. Then just wax it and your good to go

what do you do just run a long extention from your house outside with the hair dryer, right now is probaly the best time to do since my lx sedan is brand new, so the paint wont be different, but i also dont want to mess up the paint , so ill have to wait, but damn i want a shaved looking ***
