The emblems will come off with a heat gun or hair dryer and fishing line or dental floss....pretty easy. The guys over on FTW do it all the time. After you get it off then you use Goof-Off to take off the extra sticky stuff and then wax it. It might be a different color at first will after a couple of weeks it will all look the same.



Hope that helps.

Susie he doesn't have the emblems that have the adhesive backing. There is a hole in the actual door and the emblem is bolted on more or less.

Yeah it shouldn't be bolted. The holes are just for the guides on the back of the emblems. There should be two little pegs on them. But nothing should be bolted on.

How do u go about taking that off?


well what u do is u take a flat blade screw driver and put it inbetween the plastic and the metal of the door. I recomend using a tow wraped around the head of the screw driver so u don't scratch the paint or the plastic. There is these push plugs that u gotta pry them out of the holes they are in. I can't really tell u were they are but if u start to pry u can find out real fast, but u wana pry next them so u don't damage the plastic. If someone has a better way chime in...good luck...
