Question Debadging?

I want to take off the chrome 4x4 laredo on my jeep, is it easy enough to do myself?
i looked up i can heat it up with a blow driver then get behind it with an old credit card and then rub the adhesive with adhesive cleaner.

Is it that easy?

Yeah blow drier is ideal. If you get a hot day, that is sometimes enough.

Personally I'd use fishing line or something similar rather than the credit card. The card is more likely to scratch the paint.

Stuff like goo gone helps too. I used some WD40 and that worked well at removing the excess glue.

I was thinking of using a paper card like a business card, would that be better?
And goo gone or wd40 wont hurt the paint?

You might find that the paper card isn't strong enough, worth a shot though, can't do any harm.

And no it won't harm your paint, but be sure to give it a good clean afterwards. I used some compound to remove some stubborn bits of adhesive.

Others will chime in too

Re: Debadging?

when i did mine i didnt use any type of heat other than the sun. i just used goo gone and fishing line. it worked good but like these guys are saying some source of heat would probably make your life easier. I would definitely recommend fishing line though, it works really slick.

Re: Debadging?

Dental floss works as well as fishing line.

Re: Debadging?

Definitely fishing line, some heat and some adhesive remover.. I think I used some turtle wax bug &nervous tar remover. Was quick and easy.

Re: Debadging?

I did my 2007 Limited using dental floss then a tool from Wurth called a Caramel wheel(same colour and smells like caramel) which fits into a battery drill, Works great at getting rid of backing glue and no paint damage!!
