Exactly... I pulled mine off on a sunny day and used adhesive remover. You can also use fishing line to get behind the emblems, it wont scuff the paint. Make sure you clean the area well with adhesive remover then wax the whole panel when your done.
I have removed evey badge and cheap plastic part on my truck. I used a plastic spoon to get under my badges and poped tghem off. I used the 3m stuff to get the adheasive off. The tape they used for the fender flares was a pain in the pooper. Very Very sticky stuck stuff.
is it hard to get the door ding thingys off my '05? They are turning different colors than the rest of the truck??? And will it the paint be real noticable from where they were removed? The truck is silver.
I used a hair dryer, plastic putty knife, fishing line and 3M adhesive remover and tons of elbow grease.
The tailgate emblems came off with fishing line and heat.
The side ones were stuck on. I used the plastic putty knife a scuffed the clear coat a bit.
Then I rubbed every last little bit of tape off mith my fingers. Wouldnt reccommend this approach. My Fingers were solid blisters. And my fingers are tough from playing bass.
Get the Eraser wheel it works wonders.
As for the 4x4 a steam cleaner works well.
And the LS/LT/SLE/SLT badges can just be peeled off. Theres no 3M tape on the back.
I chose to add the new Duramax/Allison Badges where the Old Duramax Diesel Badges were, Dince I drive a GMC and also swapped Big mirrors onto it, it makes it look like I drive an 06-07, so people think I have money. hehe.
I used a screw driver, and a shop rag to pry the corners up on all my emblems. Twice went to far, scratched the paint the second day I had my truck. After a quite a few trys, got the badges off. I used my fingers to remove most of the adhesive. Then used nail polish remover/acetone. I looked to see if my clear coat is still there and it is. I tried using a hair dryer, that took too long so went and used the screw driver and rag.
Speaking of removing things, how can I get paint off the bottom of the rocker panels and step bars from where they painted the lines on the road? Its bad enough that while washing my truck I can feel the rough texture through the wash mit. I'm afraid that anything I use will damage the finish on my truck. Any ideas?
Try goo be gone or some crap to that nature. Can go to home depot, they have a good selection of crap remover stuff. I also heard you could use peanut butter to rmove sticky stuff. Don't think I would rub a shit load of pb on my truck though. Also maybe try some nail polish remover, but be careful of your clear coat when choosing what to use.
When I got my truck it didn't have any mud flaps, behind the front and rear tires it had yellow road paint on it. The black paint came off with the yellow paint. When I took the truck to get it detailed.
