How To Remove Car/Truck Emblems with the Eraser Wheel
Here is am removing the door spears off my Dodge Ram. I got a lot of
questions when I did the emblems. So I figured I'd throw a quick video up
on how I did it.
Here you can see I used the Eraser wheel and 17lb fishing line. Pretty much
it. I used the fishing line to "CUT" them emblem glue/adhesive from the
emblem.. remove the emblem and then used a Eraser wheel to remove the
adhesive left behind. Since my truck was a 2007.. it wasn't easy to remove
with hand. Some newer cars you can do it with just your fingers. IF your
car is older - it has had time to bake to the paint. Worried about
ghosting? It will go away real soon. Waxing helps afterward and even some
acetone if you have glue left over.
DIY: Wrapping Rims in Matte Black Vinyl
I wanted to try a new style for my winter rims, and instead of pinting them
i wrapped them in vinyl, Costs about $10 a rim.
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/321097538225 This short video shows you how to wrap
a rim quickly(sped up 3x), There really is no downfall to doing this, faster and cheaper then painting, the
vinyl only weighs .4 ounces or about 50 grams. and thats spread out
throughout the rim and if you dont like it then just peal it off. If you
want more info or you want to buy some vinyl contact me at
email@example.com Or come contact me at 8thcivic.com please don't send a
message though youtube, I don't come here often.
Check it out on ebay for the full written DIY.

How to De-Badge your Vehicle
http://www.realtruck.com/ shows you how to take off and de-badge dealership
emblems and vehicle make emblems. This is a very easy process that you can
do at home.
Hi. John here, with Real Truck Garage. Say, a lot of people been calling in
and asking us, "How do we get these badges and markers off of our trucks?"
Well, you know we really love our dealerships and everything but sometimes
we just want a more clean, sleek look to the back of our vehicle. So, I'm
going to be showing you today how to go ahead and get these dealership tags
The first thing we need to do is know what we need to do this with. What I
use is I just use a heat gun and, most everybody has some of this laying
around, fishing line. The first step is to go ahead and take the heat gun
and heat up the badge, so that way we can get the adhesive loosened up so
that we can get this peeled off with our fishing line and I'll show you how
to do the fishing line in just a moment. The important thing to remember
when you're doing this is not to get this over hot and boil the paint on
the back of your truck. So, you only want to get it hot enough just to get
that glue loosened up. Okay.
Once we got that good and hot and what we'll do is well take our fishing
line and get a good bite on it, slide it underneath the end of the badge
and work it back and forth like a saw. And there you have it. Okay. So,
what I'll do is I'll take the adhesive cleaner, just spray a liberal amount
on the adhesive that's left on there, get it good and soaked down. And then
what we'll do is we'll let that soak for about three to five minutes. Now
that this has been setting for a while we're going to go ahead and take our
plastic scraper and go ahead and start scraping that left over adhesive off
the back of our truck.
Okay. And there you have it, just like it was never there.
De-badge the Ram
Removing the lettering and badges from the new truck. Looks better to me
when it's done.
Here's an after photo :
Make sure you use a shield of some sort if you decide to spray the 3m
adhesive remover near anything plastic like your brake light covers... etc.
May not play nice with it. Also, I suggest testing the 3m Adhesive remover
under the hood or someplace inconspicuous before using it on a highly
visible spot on the vehicle.
