    Nice job - looks very clean. Impressive because I thought it was going to look obvious, but it ended up smooth and clean.

    I used a heat gun and then wiped the residue off with alcohol.

    Cool to see the theiry put to the test. Your truck looks great. I'm also glad to see another use for fishing line. I only ever use is to hang Christmas decorations. (Can you tell I don't go fishing?)

    If you do it that way you need to have no distractions. A little too much heat and bye-bye clearcoat.

    Cool write-up. BZ way to go on this one.

    finally got around to de-badging my silverado this weekend. i didn't use a heat gun and my results were flawless. I just grabbed hold of the door trim pieces and ripped them off. the glue came off easily with just my finger nail and about 20 minutes. i used alcohol to clean what little bit of glue was left, followed by some carnauba wax to protect.

    the tailgate was a little trickier. the chevrolet emblem came off with most of the glue on it and i easily blended the slight fading with some light rubbing & meguire's scratch-x followed by more carauba wax. the silverado logo proved to be a total pain in the ass, and theres still some glue on my tailgate from it. my thumbs got sore so i'll finish it up over the next couple days. the heatgun will definitely make this process easier, but you gotta be real careful with the heat application. i'll probably stick with the fingernail method solely for the best interests of my paint

    Yes you do have to be careful with the heat gun. I just heated them up just enough to distort the emblem and then garbed the corner with a pair of duckbills and pulled them off. And yes my fingertips hurt after scarping off residue too.

    Just got back inside from removing my door molding. My driver side pulled off with no tape left on the doors. (According to the date on the back of the molding it was just made in '08). The passenger side was a different story. It was original to the truck. It left every piece of tape behind, I expected this. I searched all 4 auto parts stores in the area and can't find an eraser wheel. Can anyone recommend anything else to remove the adhesive?

    Thanks!
