For all of those who are like me and hate the stupid badges that GM put on the middle of the doors of the G6, wanted to let you know there is an easy way to take them off which can be used for the other badges on the car. All you do is take a blow dryer and aim the heat on the badge until the adhesive gets loose enough to it pull it off. Then use your thumb to rolls off the excess black adhesive, and I used goof off to take the residual adhesive underneath it. Viola they're gone and with a little bit of wax you get an even better shine.

I took the pontiac and G6 off.
In South Texas you dont need a blow drier. :banana:

All mine says is GT.
Which in 2005 was the top of the line. :beer:

In the process of debadging my car, found out that you can do some pretty funny things with the left over letters...
If you cant open up the file I rearranged the letter to say "Pinto GT"

How long did you have to heat the badge before it came off? Also, did it leave any marks on the paint?
only long enough until the adhesive becomes soft so you can remove the badge...the only marks would be the remaining adhesive, which can be removed with goo gone...clean it up when your done, and there should be no marks

When I was doing it I tried floss and it just wound up shredding....you actually just could be really careful and use pliers to take off the badges, but then it's more of a bitch to get off the adhesive. So just use a blow dryer and you'll be fine

Also, even though I pulled off the badges on the rear and cleaned up all the residue/adhesive you can still see "Pontiac G6 GT" under certain direct light (I like to call it "Ghost Badging" haha). Anybody have any techniques to remove these outlines????
