I debadged the Hemi over the weekend. I used a heat gun to pop off the badges. Then I tried to use goo gone on the tape. It didn't work too well. I finally bought 3M adhesive remover. It was too easy. I had 1 problem, my tailgate was recently repainted due to a bad paint job earlier. When they replaced the badges, the shop used some type of glue to put the badges back on. I cannot get the [email protected]&n glue off!! What can I use? I need help on this one.

I dont know... if 3M adhesive remover doesn't work. Is it a solid/hard type glue, or is it more like silicone?

That what mine did. I think I used something to scrape on it, trying not to scratch it. And I used the adhesive remover wheel. If you look closely on mine you can still see the letters outline.

The glue is more of a solid. Around the edges it was more of a silicone type. I think it was something like the 3M emblem adhesive.

I don't have a clue. You might ask the dealership or body shop that repainted the tailgate what they used and what you could use to get it off.

Find a body shop supply house in your area and ask them. If it is a 3M product, they will have something to remove it. 3M always makes their professional product lines "reversible", if you will, meaning they will have a mating product to remove whatever adhesive product they sell, like a matched set kind of thing.

The 3M trim adhesive remover (pn 08987) that is the most commonly sold is a "general trim adhesive remover". It covers a wide spectrum of adhesive types. Find out exactly which adhesive was used, then find its counterpart for removal. Body Shop supply house like English Color...any of the experienced counter men will be able to tell what adhesive was used just by glancing at your truck and find the correct remover for you.

Also forgot to mention to try this technique. Thoroughly soak a clean terrycloth rag with 3M remover, hold the rag on the area for a minute or so to soak the area. Then use a small, clean PLASTIC scraper and make ONE PASS ONLY over the adhesive area. See if you have any type of residue on the scraper. Most of the time it will be clear-ish in color and very "snot-like" If so, repeat the process until all is clean. I have found SOME trim tapes that are baked on pretty good and will not come off easily, but will come off in layers. You can actually see on the scraper the different colors, by layer, of the tape. Prepare for an hour long session of this method for that one area. Take your time and clean the scraper after each pass so you don't leave micro marring in the clearcoat.
