The dealer decals are going to go this weekend. I'll do some photoshop wizardry to see how it looks with other badges removed. Now for the n00b question. What's the best way to remove badges? Fishing line and Goo-Gone?
i debadge all of my vehicles. this is by far the easiest one ever. cut them off with fishing line, then a standard hair dryer provides plenty of heat to take the rest off. just heat it up and rub/roll the adhesive in one direction. i literally had all of mine off in 15 minutes. when i was doing my horn upgrade, i was going to remove the front wrx emblem while i had the bumper off, but forgot. so that one will have to wait until another time. you have to get that from the inside of the bumper.
