badges .emblem

Im trying to remove my emblems in the rear, both the 'toyota' and the "GT" emblem. I removed the "GT" emblem and there is a white plastery material underneath, sticky material. How do I remove it?

use bug and tar remover. Rub it on till it comes off. Don't rub too hard but hard enough. I wouldn't recomend any other ways because i can't take off the paint. Hope that helps. thumbsup

or you can use Gogone. If you don't want to buy Gogone you could just do what Zero said...heat it up w/the a hairdryer and just keep rubbing it with a damped rag.

I used a hair dryer. Blow that sucker off till it gets hella hot, then use a piece of string, I used dental floss. Once removed, I used WD-40.

I used 3M adhesive remover. I think that works better than anything else.

What ever you guys do...
Dont pull of the front emblem of a 2004 Tsunami Celica
...unless you're willing to live with the two holes under it.

BTW do you guys know what knid of glue I should use to stick it back on? I hate those two holes in my bumper. It looks awful!

I used it and it works fine. Sprayed a bit on a piece of cloth and rubbed off the glue.
