I got my truck painted about a year ago, after which I replaced all the SS badges that were taken off. Thing is, now I kinda want to take the badges off cause it looks more custom. Anybody know how to take them off without ruining the paint?

yah and you might try pulling fishing line or dental floss behind the badges. I used fishing line and it worked pretty well. Just don't pull on the line to much cause it will snap it.

But yah you will need some good adhesive remover and some band-aids for your thumbs. Cause you will probably get a couple blisters trying to get that rubber adhesive stuff off your truck.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the tips. Thats pretty much the process I had in mind, but I wanted some back-up before I want to hacking on my truck. Thanks!

Well, I took the badges off of my truck today. I really appreciate all the advice you guys gave. I went to Lowe's and bought some Goo be Gone adhesive remover which worked great. The one thing I can whole heartedly suggest is finding an E or A string off an electric guitar and use it to "saw" under the badges. It does a great job as long as you keep enough tension on it to keep it from touching the paint. Word.

they make a rubber eraser that fits on a side cutter that will not scratch your paint and pulls the tape and glue off in seconds
