Thread: debadging

    Default debadging

    ever since i saw my buddies 97 silverado debadged iv wanted to do it to my truck, i think i have everything i need, but im looking for best ways to get the trim peices off the sides and the big chevy sign on the tail gate off. and i have a pinstrip sticker that runs along the bottom of the windows on the sides, since its pretty old i hadnt tried to take it off with a razor blade, should i just work at it little by little till i get the whole thing off with the razor blade?

    thanks for the help!

    as for the badging and trim just heat them up with a hair dryer or a heat gun and run floss or fishing line behind it and kind of saw it off with the fishing line or floss but take your time... than with the left over glue on the truck just use goo gone or somehting to get it off.... as for the pinstripe I would not use a razorblade as it is most likely going to scratch the paint.... i would just use your fingernails or something and again heating it up may help too

    get a pinstripe remover to get the adhevsive off. it's a tan rubber wheel that attaches to a screwgun. alot easier and faster than your fingernail.

    afterwards spray some 3M adhvesive cleaner (red/white bottle) on it and wipe off.

    lastly, you might what to wax where the molding was to make it look uniform.

    I did a search on Oreilly's website, and they have a couple different kinds of plastic razor blades, so I'm sure most auto parts stores will carry them or at least be able to order them for you.
