I'm actually going to work on that this weekend. It's debadged now, but I'm going to spread them out. I'll post pics when I'm done.

Re: (Token)

Not finished yet. I just found a good adhesive a couple of days ago. Will hopefully get it done this weekend. Sorry.

Re: (Token)

Hmm never thought of the dealer. I took mine off with dental floss and a hairdryer. It was fairly simple. I used the hairdryer to warm up the adhesive, and slid the floss behind the letter, and it came right off. Then I used an adhesive remover from the auto parts store that took care of the adhesive that was left. It looks perfect!

You are having the dealership do this? Who checks your oil for you?? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

You should be using 3M foam automotive trim tape and nothing else. It's available at many auto parts stores and especially auto body supply stores.<p>Thin fishing line also works well for cutting through the foam tape. Just slip it behind the letters and saw it back and forth.

Wiped off the glue using a Turps Substitute. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The dealer is charging me around $18 for labour and $25 for the badge. Its not bad.

Re: (Token)

Sounds like a fair price for the badge work. Was at the local Volvo dealer earlier picking up a new power steering reservoir and noticed the wider Volvo emblems on most of the cars on the lot. If done well it would look nice on our cars.

Yeah, look in the yellow pages for auto body and paint supply, the kinds of places that mix paint for body shops. They'll have it for sure.
