I'm thinking the car might look better without the chrome GM badges on the fronts of the doors. Has anyone removed these? Is it safe for the paint, and how would I go about it? I'll probably just leave it if it's too much trouble.

Before:


After:

Wish everything was as easy as Photoshop!

I think I've already found the solution. I'm still concerned about the paint underneath though.

This has really got me thinking. Here's something else:

Before:


After, Option 1:


After, Option 2:


I don't think these badges are attached by posts, but does anyone know? Also lemme know what you think of the 2 options (or no change at all).

Wow, I just removed one of the GM badges. Couldn't have been any easier. I didn't need to use any adhesive remover or anything like the website said. Maybe because it's a new car. Just a little elbow grease on a little remaining adhesive.

I agree. That's the way I'm planning on doing it. Here's what I did this morning. The rest will have to wait until after Easter family functions. :rolleyes:

Done! All it took was a hair dryer, dental floss, and 3M Molding Tape.

Now, if I could just get rid of that keyhole... :rolleyes:

I think I'm going to do this to my G6

Remove the GM badges, and the Pontiac Badge, and Move the G6 badge over.

I think it looks too plain with just 'GTP' on the back, the pontiac emblem lets us know what it is, so G6 GTP I think will look nice.

I forgot to post on this before but yeah I took off my gm badges. It was really simple just dental floss and a warm day is all you need to take them off. They make the sides look so much better off. also it is pretty amazing that something that small and simple could make it look that much uglier.

^^--- I totally agree! I couldn't believe how much better it looked without them. I probably wouldn't have even thought about it except one of my buddies commented about GM putting their advertising on the sides of the car. :rolleyes:

Lampoon, do you have a before and after pic of the back of the car. I'd like to compare the difference in the dart colors.
