LMAO i used my Social insurance card and it worked i just used a lil rubbing compound an got the lil scuffs out but i almost died when i saw that there was hole in my trunk and hood from the Hyundai symbol! i had no idea they puched holes right into the trunk and hood! what a silly idea! -1 gold star for Hyundai but i hadent peeled the emblem off entirely so i just pushed it back down and now i gota get a nice set of T badges
If you can grip the badge, try twisting it. Rotating it can break loose the adhesive.ok i bought my car bout a month ago with old T badges on it and they are faded and oxidized so i bought some new ones but how do u get the old ones off i tried to use fishing line last night but it bout tore my hand up and i didnt get anywhere. any suggestions?
So... now I've got the emblems on my Tib. The back "H" logo is pulled off the exact same way as the front.
The "Tiburon" at the back is just stuck on. I used the cable ties to cut through the gunk and it worked great, got "Tiburon" off in 1 piece. Easy as pie... and the emblems are cheap. I say go for it.
Please don't troll the video. I am a visual kind of person. When it comes to DIY's I prefer visual aids over writeups. I made this video to help you guys.
Couple of Notes:
"Goo Gone" <-- Works better than all purpose cleaner but it removes clear coat on painted surfaces. All purpose cleaner is easier on your painted surfaces but, as you can see, it is a lot harder to clear off the gunk in colder temperatures (ie: Canada in November).
"Fishing Line" <-- Can't find cable ties? Fishing wire also works great.
ADMINS... I encourage you to save these pictures locally on your server because oneday I might move on and these pictures will turn into "X"s like the original Emblem Removal DIY thread. It's up to you guys.
Fill it with bondo, sand it smooth, paint it. I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself. Get a professional to do it for you, if you lack the knowledge/skill.
If you want the holes filled you'd need to take it to a body shop. Only way around that is doing what most do. And that's simply using the tuscani emblem.
I haven't yet, but I still hope to. For now I have black nylon plugs in the holes.
