DIY: Vehicle Badging Removal/Replacement
Video tutorial on how to remove/shave your vehicles emblems/badges. I have also included how to add a new emblem to a vehicle. Tools needed are a heat gun or hair dryer, dental floss or fishing line, polisher is optional, polishing compound, wax, lint free polishing cloth, brake cleaner or rubbing alcohol, ruler or string, and a fine tip marker. Now not all vehicles have smooth glue on emblems, some types have alignment holes in the backside which would need to be filled afterwards. This particular procedure was done on a 2004 Volkswagen Golf TDI.
For a full polishing tutorial, view this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kdhxWB2nMw
-using a heat gun, heat the area of the emblem
-once warm, take the dental floss and run it against the body around the emblem to cut away the glue
-once half was through the emblem, you can assist pulling it back with your hand
-once off, some of the remaining glue can be cleaned off by rolling it on the body with your fingers
-wipe away the left over glue with a form of degreaser
-there will be an outline of the old emblem, the paint can be polished to remove this
-if you are reinstalling the emblem, use reference points to determine where it can be places and to ensure it is level on the vehicle
-wipe the area down with a degreaser to ensure it won't affect the adhesion of the new emblem
-place on panel and firmly push to ensure it is adhered to the panel
