Badge Removal and installation

Whats a good way to get the badges off a 96 F250 cleanly without messing up the paint, and replacing them with the badges off an 05.

Dont want to make a big gooey mess basically or screw up the paint

Take some fishing line, double it up, and saw behind the badges. Then, get some 3M adhesive remover (or Goo Gone) and use that on the goo that is left behind. Then, wash and put a coat of wax on whatever paint the Goo Gone touched....

I've used that same method on all my trucks.

The Fishingline method has worked well for me too. To help get the adhesive off in a clean fashion, try a Clay Bar. The Clay will help to safetly remove the old adhesive with out scratching. Make sure to use plenty of Clay Lubricant or Detail Spray to help out.

Then follow with a good polish to clean the paint, then apply the new badge.

Let us know how you make out. If you have any additional questions, please let me know.

When I debadged my 06 I had a hard time removing the residue leftover from the glue What worked for me was a vinyl remover wheel You can buy one from a parts shop It peels the glue right off leaving a lite layer behind that you can remove with goo gone or some similar product The wheel will not harm your paint It is like a big round eraser that you put in a drill I still have my badges if someone wants to trade something for them as i will not be using them again PM me
