i dont have nails so what can i use to peel it off with out damaging the paint? Do you think a rubber scrape that you use for window tinting would work.

I have read that dental floss right down near the paint works to more or less saw thru the adhesive to paint interface. Carefull, Carefull use of a plastic or nylon scraper might work with out scratching surface. Warming the surface with a heat lamp would help soften adhesive but do not get paint too hot.

Fishing line x2

just saw back and forth put the line between the emblem and adhesive, use a hair dryer to heat it up a bit, makes it easier

Does this work as well for the dealer stickers or will the blow dryer work by itself?

You can also use an old credit card or something like that and WD-40. and a hair dryer. The hair dryer will loosen the sticker so you can peel it off and the WD-40 will slowly dissolve the glue while you scrape it off with credit card. Won't scratch the clearcoat. But on some glues its takes a lot of spraying and gently scraping the layers off as they dissolve.

I must have been lucky, mine just peeled off super easy. I was able to re apply them, hence the name of my truck in my sig block.

I've always used a hair dryer to get the dealer stickers off and then goo gone to remove the residue, followed by a quick area wash to remove any goo gone residue...always worked like a charm for me...

To remove larger emblems that are stuck on with tape, use fishing line and the residual adhesive can be removed with a rubber wheel that you buy at auto body shops. It takes the residue off with no marking. The rubber wheel can also take off stickers without leaving residue or marks.

Here's what the wheel looks like:

Took all but the Z71 off mine this weekend, just a blow dryer and fingernails they came right off and left no residue. :D Even took the little GM emblems off the doors. 8) Does the door molding come off as easy I am debating on doing that but I sure will be mad at myself the first time I get a door ding? :twisted:
