I have a question on this subject. I started debadging my 05 over the weekend. Expecting it to take no more than a half an hour. This is the most painstaking debadging I have ever done...and I've done it to all of my vehicles. Anybody have any tips and tricks or products they use??
The adhesive is pretty strong and its got some pretty thick foam like stuff on it, and I can't find a way of getting it off short of scraping with my fingernail. It literally took me 3 hours to get the C and DODGE 2500 off of 1 side!! and now my thumb is sore too from the scraping...
Yea, you can pick up an eraser wheel at your local autopart store for around 20 bucks. Just use some fishing line to work the badges off and then hit it up with the eraser wheel. It works awesome and it takes off every bit of that adhesive, just becareful not to stay in one spot too long or the paint will get really hot.
I've always had good luck with applying some Goo Gone over the badge and letting it soak in for a few minutes. After I heat it up with a hair dryer, the badge comes off a lot easier. Then I'll keep applying Goo Gone to the rest of the adhesive and wiping it off with a microfiber cloth until it's gone. I would also wax the spot when you're done removing the badge.
