Any reason why you decided to take the Malibu/LTZ badges off?

I saw someone had done that at the grocery store, and you could see the razor marks where they got the badges off. ::::smacks head::::

Looks clean.

I HATE stickers on paint. I did that with my 2002 Z-71 LT the day after I brought it home. I used braided fishing line to saw through the moulding tape, and the Z-71 peeled right off with a little help from a hair dryer.

Someone asked me how I got a W/T with leather and painted fender flares. At that point, I knew that I had accomplished exactly what I was trying to. I wanted an LT that would not be noticed.

Looks clean. The bowtie looks good, sticks out more, and it still lets you know its a chevy!

I did this about a month ago. So many people stop and ask you what kind of car that is... I think it looks much cleaner without them.

FYI, a hairdryer to warm up the adhesive goes a long way.

Heat, either by sunlight or a hairdryer, and some fishing line to "saw" behind the emblems. This won't scratch anything. Then when off, some WD40, Goo Gone, or polish to remove any leftover glue remnants.

Clean look, did the same to mine. The letters come off very easily, just don't rush it or bend one back - would scratch the finish. I could almost twist mine off, very easy. Then a little goof off and just a bowtie in the middle now. Clean, very clean.:)

I am considering taking the "LS" and GM emblems off all together. I would like to get the MALIBU taken off of the back trunk and have MALIBU placed on each side of the car like the GM emblems are.

That'll cost me a fair amount, I am sure, though. Maybe if I knew what kind of glue they used, I could order just another set that says "MALIBU" and then do it myself? Anyone know what would be best for this application?

As to the GM emblems, I can twist them right now but have not until I get some Goo Gone.
