I removed mine, and it like left an etched in ouline of the badge in the paint on the back one only, its really ugly and visable in bright light, headlights, and when its dirty, id like too save up and buy one of the brand new ones from Jeff M for 80$, wich would be worth it

Damn, they say to put WHAT on your paint? thats cool for a stupidru.

What you do is go down to your local AUTO paint supply and get a eraser wheel and put it on a drill.

Thats what I did and it zipped it right off. mechanically. no solvents.

leaves not a trace. I like the floss though, I used a razor knife carefully.

have a nice day all....

Why do you want to take them off?  Honestly, I think it looks out of place and naked without them, besides, why would you want to show off such a unique car?  Sleeper effect?

I like having them off because then the poser Hondabah racers don't have any idea what is under the hood and race me anyway! ;) :laugh: I remember back when I first had the car and would pull up next to someone they would see the badges and balk at a race with me. Was worse with my Turbo Sunbird though...it had a huge TURBO sticker down the door! :icon_rolleyes: :laugh:
