How does one remove the badging without ruining the paint or the badging itself? Those with experience please reply.

I dont know the style of badging it is but if its kinda big and thick, you will be able to get a piece of fishing line and work it behind the badge and work it if. Or you can try a grocery stor discount card, or any card with no embosed numbers and just slide it behind the badging and work it of.

Are you talking about the dealer advertisement badging or the SRT-4 badging? If it's the former, I'd try something like Goo Gone (Wal Mart. drugstores, etc...)

I wrote to my dealer last night requesting that they leave the dealership ad OFF the back of my car. I don't mind a license plate bracket (highly removeable), but the dealer name on the paint is unacceptable to me.

Chill out spitter, just thinkin about cleanin up the back. By removing the Dodge & the SRT-4 emblems most won't have a clue what just flew by 'em. Inexpensive theft deterent as well, along with my license plate frame "Thou shall not steal - My Automobile!

I don't usually bring posts back from the dead but I figured a lot of people have there SRT-4's now maybe someone is considering a full or partial debadging. Anybody out there considering it?

Well ,
I requested no dealership sticker on my car, and I didnt notice it until I was back in tampa. Those bastrads stuck one on there...I used some HOTTT water on a rag, and pulled it off. I have like 3 small glue spots left on it.

NEXT,

Possibly DEBADGING....looks tough...no space behind the letters.

It is the same as with the Suzuki SWIFT GT for Geo badging. Nothing is worst when a little geo on steroids passes a Acura or Honda ricer. LOL

Though, it is funny to allow folks to think "...what is the hell was that."

However, allow a bodyshop do it. It will take a heater gun, oil base liquid in a squirt bottle, and a clean razor to remove it.

My first mod! :lol:

I did the rear (Dodge + SRT-4) last night and it looks super clean and now the car looks very mysterious to the uninformed.

All they are is bendable plastic stickers. I used a blockbuster video car and I started from the top of the left side of the letters and used a downward right motion and they came off easily. My garage was hot which may have loosened them up a bit. I used a little alcohol to get the small amount of goo off. There is a slight ghosting effect where the letters where but I'm sure a little wax/buff will remove that.

They are still in good shape if I choose to re-apply them later. :wink:

I'll post pics as soon as it stops raining here!

I didn't know that was rice too, if you read the reasons I stated before you'll see why I did it.

Thanks 4 the grats Daytona.

Yes, I meant b-buster video card. It was the thinnest one in my walet.

It is not a ricer way to remove any badging but to add a hundred pieces
of decals and let's no forget the 'R' badge. (meaning RICER)...
