    I have used string or fishing line to get them off without wrecking the emblems or scratching your paint. Dupli color makes plastic paint in many colours then Use some good qaulity double sided tape to re-apply them. Should be very easy, good luck!

    I would get the overlay or new letters. Fishing line will work or they make plastic razor blades. Use some adhesive remover as well. The problem will be getting the letters back on perfectly straigh and the same exact heigh on both sides. If you have patience you can. I find it a pain. i have the overlays and they look good. I paint cars for a living and I don't even wanna be bothered with those door letters.

    Cool

    Hello,
    Our door lettering is 1/8" thick, comes in any color you'd like or even different finishes like brushed aluminum or mirrored plexi. They come with peel-n-stick adhesive backing for easy application too. The price for a pair is $65 shipped in the US. Simply remove your existing items with a hot hair dryer or as someone indicated fishing line, clean the area with alcohol and apply our items. It will have a professional, show-quality result with minimal effort on your behalf.
