Another Method for Debadge mod

I am a new guy here and there is tons of great information. One of the first things I do to my vehicles in remove the emblems. All of the methods give the same result, just putting another option out there.

Items needed:

20 LB fishing line
Wd-40
Clean rag


1. Wash the truck

2. Use the fishing line holding it in both hands, place part of the line between the emblem and vehicle. With a sawing motion go all the way across the emblem and remove it.

3. Pick back one edge of the double sided tape left on the truck so you have a tab to hold onto, pull the tab slow keeping it as close to the vehicle as possible. You will be pulling it away from the area the is still stuck. Just pull slow, as the tape stretches it will come off glue and all.

4. Spray the WD-40 on the area of the old emblem and wipe off and residue left.

5. Wash the truck again and apply wax to the areas.

This allows most people to get the mod done with items at the house.

Doug

You could always get a grinder and just grind them off

Don't forget to mask off the area around them with blue 3M tape first!

Oh boy,

The joys of being a newbie on a forum. Maybe you clowns could put some useful information on here instead of bashing all poster looking for real information.

But thumbs to walkfuu, your $231.21 worth of mods are "sweet"! You get a gift card to Walmart for XMass?

Actually Turtle, there is a certain forum member that they are making fun of.

You are too new for us to put this much effort into busting your balls.

Oh, Welcome

Thanks for the compliment Turtle! I'm fixin' to head outside and bolt on the Corsa exhaust I bought @ 4wheelparts for $150.

In all seriousness, OkSlim hit the nail on the head. We're just reminiscing about the various failed methods people have actually tried and probably might. We do appreciate you posting this useful information regarding proper badge removal. I used an eraser wheel to remove the adhesive from mine, but to each their own.

Are you a soft shelled turtle?

Hey Turtle, First, welcome to the "forum." I don't think I welcomed you before.
Next, the forum is like a group discussion or conference call. We're all on at one time and the posts are about everybody, not necessarily directed toward you. There have been a lot of attempts to do mods, some different, some ridiculous and a whole lot of really good info.. If you took offense, don't, we're all great "Tundra Bro's" and want you to join in with us.
