DIY: Going Naked on the Rear End

Postby ForeignCarParts » Tue Mar 03, 2009 4:15 pm

I'm sure almost everyone knows how to do this....but just in case you didn't know how to take off your badges and clean it up....

You'll need:
Dental Floss or fishing wire
adhesive remover
clean rag

Before:

After using the floss to cut through the adhesive:

Then the finished product after using the adhesive remover to get rid of the extra adhesives:

Exactly how i did mine. I used Armor All bug and tar remover to get the left over adhesive off, It took a couple squirts though.

You can buy the touch-up paint for your specific color.
I have the paint and new emblems available. Give me a shout if you need either.
