    Has anyone tried this mod yet?...pretty easy...heat them up with a blow dryer and peel it off then use Goo Gone to clean up residue...what do you guys think?

    Doing this kind of sparks the need for some billet bow ties at front and rear.

    Do like. I've been thinking about vinyl overlay on mine, but was undecided because I really would rather match my powder coat instead of doing them white but the contrast in blue to black wouldn't be very noticeable. This with vinyl on the emblems seems the way to go.

    Anybody done this with success? I tried, heated up with my heat gun to the point that I couldnt even touch the center cap anymore it was so hot and the sticker won't budge

    I use the 3m adhesive remover when I need to remove a sticker, etc. any paint and body shop/store carries it. I use it to get those pesky dealership lettering and emblems off the back of the vehicles. Leave your man card in your wallet and read the directions on this for problem free use.
