yeah you have the process backwards! haha you are supposed to purchase the T-badges and then take off the stock badges...

If you can grip the badge, try twisting it. Rotating it can break loose the adhesive.

You might also try prying it up, but put something under the fulcrum edge, like a discount card from a grocery store, so that the edge of the badge won't scratch the paint. Don't pry up the other side with anything that can scratch the paint, either. Nothing metal, or pointy.

Good luck!

Where do you order the badges from? a dealership?
I Got mine of eBay from a Korean based dealer i took a week or so but i only paid $20.00 with free shipping just keep looking around you'll find a good deal.

Re: DIY: Emblem Removal

if you find it tedious doing all that scrubbing i suggest you use clean prep that is what i used and that rough dried on glue came off fairly easy after that only problem for me was had my hood repainted and the body shop ended up taping the original badge off leaving me with alot of caked up over spay along the left corner.... NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT! But over all great post i saw this post and it inspired me to do my badges good thing to they were just sitting there in the box for a while lol.....

Pictures




























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.


Video

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.

Enjoy!

This helped out a lot, thanks!

Re: DIY: Emblem Removal

I'm really interested how people filled & painted the holes?

(Whoever has their car without any badge, because I think the plain look is better).

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.

Edit: Damnit Eric, lol
