Question I want to debadge

I've always liked the clean look of a de-badged car and learning (from these boards) how easy it was I went to clean up my GT. Warmed up the AWD badge an cut threw the adhesive with dental floss no problem. Next, the LEGACY badge. Past the Y, past the C...SNAP. I guess I better warm it up more. Try 2, SNAP...run up to bathroom to steal more floss from housemate. Okay try form the other side...Snap at the G. I finally figure out that the Legacy logo it mounted in the sheet metal. Is there any way to de-badge this car and fill in those holes?? Cost?

yes you can debadge the car, but it requires body work afterwards to fill them... Some idiot ran into my trunk in a parkade w/ a gate open on a truck and it dented my trunk. You'll either have to get it welded or use filler and then re-spray the area. The cost for my trunk is about $500CDN to fix... I think I may buy a new trunk and then just do it then.

On my 98 Wagon I just removed the "2.5 GT " emblem and re-attched it over the holes left by the "Legacy" emblem. It has a subtle look to it now. Also peeled off all the stickers on the windows.

I whipped my badges off, and discovered the holes (I can only think that the Japanese-market cars, and perhaps others, have badges with pins).

I plan to get a plain "Legacy" badge and stick it on the car and confuse the locals (in Oz the car is called "Liberty", for what I recently discovered is a largely pathetic reason).

I debadged my 97 GT and noticed the same thing. So I took those plastic connectors on the legacy emblem that attach the emblem onto the trunk and filled them will bondo. Then I painted those small pieces and siliconed the plastic pieces to the trunk.

We BC-BF owners have it easy, no pins, just a piece of plastic and some sticky stuff.

The "Legacy" on my wagon is another deal entirely, it's integrated into the reddish plastic that goes from one side to the other, just over the license plate.

Oh well, it's subtle there.

I puller the Legacy badge off my wagon, put scotch tape over the holes and then covered the holes with black silicone from behind. I then waited 4-5 days and removed the tape. My car is dark green and the flush black caulk there did not look too bad. But then I covered the caulk with glazing putty and painted with SOA touch-up paint, lokks pretty good now from 3 feet away (as close as most people are gonna get) and cost a lot less than a body shop...
