pics of de-badging/de-pinstriping
So i finished de-badging and de-pinstriping the truck. This is the first time ive ever done any cosmetic mods. I mostly spend my time under the hood. Its amazing how a few hours of work can change the appearance of your ride so much. As for the glue left over, a little fingernail scraping, a rag with goo gone. Then a walmart dual action buffer and Mother's Caranuba wax, worked amazing!! Tell me what ya think.

If my truck weren't too old, I would remove the badges, the side molding, and put on the smoothie bumpers.
Are you going to remove the Silverado on the back, the LS badge on the side, and the side moldings?2010 Equinox LT

Thanks guys. Yeah there was a big color difference until i hit it with the caranuba wax. I would like to hit the whole truck with a coat of it. But before i do that, i gotta get that rough idle fixed. Im replacing the 2 pre-cat 0xygen sensors on saturday. But yes i decided to leave the Silverado badge on the tailgate.
Good luck removing your z71 sticker. I had a 97 Ram, i tried removing the 4x4 sticker off the rear fender. It looked horrible. Nothing i did could get it off the paint.
