Re: To debadge the hood or not to debadge, that is the question.

I like the clean look of Moosehead's. That'll be the first mod I do when I pick mine up.

Re: To debadge the hood or not to debadge, that is the question.

Moosehead's pic inspired me to debadge the front last night. I love the look. Then I got to looking at the rear and started thinking of all of the wax and gunk that would accumulate in those 4x4 badges and decided to debadge the rear, too. I didn't have much luck with the dental floss - I think I use too thin of floss. I just wrapped a plastic putty knife in an old t-shirt and was very careful - worked great. Only had to use the Goo Gone on one tiny spot.

My thoughts exactly about the wax. Although I'm detail oriented I thought it's just so much easier and if I'm gonna remove the front then the others will feel lonely.

Re: To debadge the hood or not to debadge, that is the question.

Once I pried my badges off, I carefully placed them on an old piece of flooring tile sticky side down, wrapped them in a towel, around which I placed rubber bands, and then placed the whole thing in a bag and put it up on my self of miscellaneous car parts. If for some reason in the future I ever wanted to reinstall them, or if a future owner wanted them - I've got them. (Although I am sure I'd never get the J-e-e-p part aligned correctly!)

I used my Wagner Steam gun. Works perfectly. Easy removal, including the glue. No damage to chrome letters.

Re: To debadge the hood or not to debadge, that is the question.

what's with this heat gun and dental floss method, real men use a sawzall. Or just rip them off with your bare hands.


That looks good without the badges, I may try that someday.
