Debadging

So I've seen alot of different ways to debadge and with the ones that are done with heat I've heard of really different amounts of heat, so I have some questions.

1. Using a blow dryer on low, how long should i heat the letters?

2. Is there any posts on any of the stuff outside the car that would leave a hole in the car?

3. How long would it take for under the letters to not match the body color?


I know, they are all dumb questions, but this is one of the first things I'm doing by myself and I dont want to mess it up in any way.

Thanks in advance

blow dryer on low will take probabbly take a long time like 5-10 min of direct heat on them.

I would put it on high. One way to tell is the letter will feel like loose when they get warm.
Or just touch the trunk and if its really hot your good. Heat is your friend to get these off.

But 08 still is pretty "fresh" for the paint i would think. has more to do with if your car sits in the sun to how much it will fade.

Only place where there are holes is the front Emblem rear has no holes in the letters or emblem

I would use fishing line and goo gone. Or adhesive remover (found in auto dept.)

once you get em hot enough they should pull right off (if you dont have fishing line) you'll just have to use goof off for the left over adhesive.

Nice job. So how was the residue. I took some badges of a buddy's accord and it was a
PITA to get the Tape off.

it wasnt bad,the more residue that stayed on the car the easier it was to get off. It all just clumped up and i scratched most of it off, but the 2 GM symbols on the doors were terrible.

If you think those GM badges were bad, good thing you didn't try to take off the Pontiac dart. That one is a serious PITA.

So what did you use instead of fishing line? I used dental floss on mine and it worked OK.

i actually found some fishing line for the trunk letters. but for the GM symbols i pulled them off with my hand and then taking the residue off took forever.

My car fell victim to a bad hail storm back in July 2008, so when I went to pick it back up from the body shop, they were just about to put the logos back on the trunk and I told them not to. I still had to remove the Pontiac symbol from the center, but for them not to put the other logos on actually saved me $30!! The body shop guy said he would take it off my bill since they didn't put them back on.

As for the center logo, I used a combination of fishing line and then some 3M adhesive remover. Came off fairly simple. Since my car is on 05, if you stand at the right angle in the sunlight, you can see a very faint Pontiac logo because of the the sun fade over time. Looks good with it all gone though.
