Some people have elected to remove the large [email protected]
emblems that were used before PV began installing the smaller 3D ones. I had removed mine but left the ring and placed stickers in it. (Still have the one on back that way.)
I am anticipating having a front window installed at Tearstock, so I decided to remove the black ring and stickers on front. As has been mentioned before, this is fairly simple by heating the emblems, either by the sun or with a hair dryer, and peeling them off. Some use the edge of a credit card, but I used a PLASTIC trowel to start the edge peeling, then used my fingernail.
You will find, of course, that the longer the emblem has been on, the more of a "ghost" will appear. I don't know of a way to completely exorcise the ghost without stripping the paint, but this is the process I used. I took a rag made from an old towel, saturated it with Goo-Gone and rubbed the outlined edges. I had to repeat this process a couple of times to get the "goo" to disappear. Next, I washed the surface to get rid of any remaining Goo-Gone. I then used my electric buffer to apply Meguiar's Scratch X 2.0, being careful not to over-buff and ruin the clear coat. I then applied paste Turtle Wax by hand.
There is still a faint ghost of the old emblems, but it is not too apparent unless you look real close. Here are Before & After pictures.
