Question SUBARU rear letter removal?

I've seen a site that shows hot to do it, but I forgot to write the site name down. Silly me. Just wanted to know how to remove the letters off the trunk and get the super sticky crud off too. The site said something about dental floss, but that's all I remember. Thank for the help.

I did this one, it was kinda hard...ok get a hairdryer, some fishing line, WD-40 and a rag. Heat up each letter as you take them off. Then kind of 'floss' the fishing line the letter. Do this for each letter. Don't mind all the sticky stuff just yet. After all the letters are off, spray the WD-40 on the rag and the on the sticky stuff. Wipe vigorously (sp?). The sticky stuff will come off eventually, and then just wash that area with soap and water.

hey, i used the fishing line and "flossing" method, but i used some Goo Gone to get the sticky stuff off. It wipes away like butter and is citrus based so doesnt hurt your paint whatsoever :-)

Be very careful using anything that smells like oranges. It is Delimanine based which is a very powerful citrus solvent. Just because it is derived from orange peels and is a natural product does not make it any less powerful than a synthetic or petroleum solvent. It can cloud your clear coat on your paint if you are not careful. Be sure to clean completely after using it.

<FONT face="Comic Sans MS">When the paint "fogs" it's not the paint at all... you're burning the clearcoat. Instructions are always available on my site... click the link in my sigfile, go to "All Modificiations" then "debadging your trunk."

<FONT face="Comic Sans MS">Best thing I can suggest is go to the autoparts store and pick up some polishing compound (it will be white- do NOT get the orange stuff... it's VERY abrasive). Get a wet rag, use it sparingly, and go back and forth over the spot (NO circles). Taper pressure off as you move away from the spot. You're basically trying to polish off the damaged clearcoat and feather back into the good stuff. Wash thoroughly and rewax the spot and hope for the best

Yeah be careful when you use the citrus based cleaner, i didn't clean mine away completely and ended up with some fogging of my clear coat which didn't go away completely with waxing
