Hello all. I could have sworn I saw an emblem removal tool from Griots Garage a while back but I can't find it either online or in their printed catalog. Pretty basic task it seems but I obviously don't want to ruin anything during the process of trying to clean things up! What is everyone using to pry the badges off? And would you recommend using a blow dryer to warm up the adhesive before removal? <p>Thanks.<br>John

Re: emblem removal (jmmartin155)

I have removed emblems from my cars/SUVs/motorcycles with a blowdryer and dental floss. Have never had a problem.<p>This will be my first mod on my R next week. Remove VOLVO, S60, AWD from the lid. Add a front and rear Takspeed emblem, windows tinted next Thursday. <br>Getting the bluetooth phone this Saturday.<p>Uh yeah, I am wearing plastic diapers for the next couple days...I'M SO DAMN EXCITED! lol
