removing Civic emblem??

hey everyone ive got an easy question. I know i cannot remove the [H] from the rear of my car without bondo/paint, because of the 2 pins in the rear of the [H], but i was wondering... im 60% sure that the civic symbol doesnt have any pins, and i was wondering how people out there took their symbol off? I used fishing line on my old CRX, but that was on glass. i was wondering if this would work on the paint? will it leave a gluey residue? if so how did u people manager to get this off?

Thanks

Search. But yes, I took mine off and it was fine. It was kind of hard because that sticky stuff was a pain in the *** to get off. But it's do-able, just takes a little time and patience.

I pulled mine off on a hot sunny day just slowly vey slowly and then the glue came off with no problem...

Just take a heat gun and just slowly peel it off

You can do the same thing you did on your CRX. Thats what I did with mine, then all I did was spray the sticky crap with glass cleaner and rubbed it off. its really easy.

The bill for this project is skyrocketing way to fast......

so far your gonna need:

1. a sunny or warm day
2. a hair dryer
3. some floss

IMO.....I would save the money from this prodject and get an s2000........

ya the civic and the model emblems have double sided tape on them. Use a hair dryer to heat it up and then use dental floss to remove it by sliding it back and forth until it goes all the way through. That gets most of the double sided tape off. Then I used some 90% rubbing alcohol to get the rest off. Its cheaper than using the special remover that everyone says to use and works just as good.

or go buy a little bottle of Goo-Gone, under 3 bucks, pull the Civic badge off. then put some of that on a rag and rub it right off. did it to 2 civics now, mine and my friends 96 no problem.
