    I've debadged several trucks and some "flamer" stickers the previous owner had on Z28.

    The method I used was fishing line (10lb works), a can of 3M Adhesive Remover (aerosal can), and a microfiber towel.

    Use the fishing line to "cut" the decal away from the adhesive. After doing this, you will notice the black, soft adhesive behind it. Spray the 3M Adhesive Remover on it, re-spraying every 10-15 seconds to keep it saturated. Wipe away the adhesiver remover, and slowly and gently peel away the adhesive.

    After the black, soft adhesive is gone, the final layer will be the glue itself. Repeat the above procedure. It is very important to go slow (so you don't scratch the paint) and use the microfiber towell to wipe excess remover and adhesive away.

    When you are done, wash and wax the vehicle.

    another way is to use your G/F's hairdryer and wait unti the adhesive is soft and remove the badging then go back with WD-40 and remove the residue and then wash/wax the area...

    I never had good luck with WD-40 and removing badges - even when I used it on a brand new truck. I'm not saying it doesn't work, it just didn't work as well as the 3M Adhesive Remover.

    I told you it would work!

    That stuff is awesome! Post some pictures if you get a chance. I've been debating whether or not to take the Z28 badges off.

    Debadging is a great way to get suckers. And its suprising how even the sound of true duals does not tell some people that it is a V8 car over a V6.
    "Nice V8 or V6?", "neither its just a pissed off 4 cylinder!"
