How to: De-Badge and De-Mold your vehicle
Not sure if this was previously done but thought i might throw some knowledge at you guys
This is a 2002 Silverado so the adhesives have had a good amount of time to set in...lol
1. Astro 400E Smart Eraser Pad-10.00 (BOUGHT FROM NAPA)
2. Strong Fishing Line
3. Abrasive Compound I chose Turtle Wax Polishing Compound-3.00
4. Old Drill
Sorry I had already removed the badges before I decided to do this How To Tutorial so I will start with the molding which is the same removal just a bigger task
I began by using fishing line to "saw" away at the adhesive tape on the molding *Tip* make sure you use a strong line mine was very brittle and became so what annoying...lol *Tip* Unlike the badges the molding is stronger so once I had it removed about 6 inches with fishing line I could grab the molding and pull it the rest of the way off.
Once the molding was removed I used the Eraser Wheel to remove the tape left behind *Tip* I bought two wheels but was able to remove badges and molding with one they last awhile *Tip* The Eraser Wheel is actually made to fit on another tool but the stud is long enough on the back to fit in a drill
As you can see the Eraser Wheel removes the adhesive very well and fairly quickly I can imagine how long this would take using Goo Gone..lol The Eraser Wheel leaves a residue behind that is majorly cleaned off by soap and water.
After "erasing" the adhesive I washed the area with soap and water very good then I used the turtle wax compound to remove the excess smudges and wax the area
As you can see the 1500 emblem and molding is removed. This complete job took a better half of my day to do but I like it and think it was worth it. HOPE THIS WILL HELP YOU GUYS
