    ? Trans Am door emblem

    I would like to install chrome or stainless door emblems. I'm not sure if you remove the exsisting ones and if you do how is it done? I would rather not install decals but would like something more permenant. The polished stainless on E-b** look pretty thick so I believe you are looking at removing the stock. Any thoughts?

    TIA , Dave

    Try using some nylon fishing line working it behind the letters.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    remove the girlls on the sides by just pulling on them with needle nose pliars.

    remove the lettering on teh side with a hot hair-blow dryer and the fishingline is a slick move to, kinda like flossing teeth.

    i suggest the acrylic stuff from www.spinnerpremiumdesigns.com [site sponsor] see mine:

    have you had any trouble with them falling off? i noticed you're in ohio, an I'm in cincy; I talked to mark spinner and told him that the variable climates we have take a tool on the tape for the door emblems and he should use the thicker stuff on those. Since i've gotten my new set, they are phenomenal and I can't forsee any of them falling off after a few weather cycles.

    he's a great guy-backs up his product 100% and is a true business man/professional before and after the sale. I highly recommend him based on his service alone

    Your photography skills are quite impressive, how did you achieve the effect? Was it a Photoshop job or is that just the straight picture? If it's the pic, what camera do you use? If it's PS, you should give me a short run-down on how you did it.

    Those door emblems would look quite nice on my '02 WS6. I may have to look into it.

    I have had no trouble with them falling off. I got new ones this summer to replace the ones in my rear panel and I had a hell of a time getting the old ones off.
