Here is a really easy way to remove that thick 3M film that holds your vehicle badging to your truck:
1: Get some fishing line (Preferably SPIDER-LINE, it's woven and literally unbreakable)
2: Remove the badges by using a sawing motion with the fishing line
I. Hold fishing line tighly wound in each hand and hold even with surface
3: Remove each undesired badge
4: Now, you are left with about an 1/8th inch of sticky/ foamy black film
5: Get some House of Kolor polyurethane Medium Reducer (Can get off ebay or anything, I would say 16oz. would do the entire truck.)
6: CAREFULLY, I cant stress this enough... CAREFULLY, pour some reducer on a rag in a WELL-VENTILATED AREA and dab it onto the film ONLY, do your best to not get it on the paint, It will not destroy it on impact or anything, but if it sits uncleaned, longterm.. it MAY bruise your clearcoat
7: you will notice that the material has been broken down by the reducer and has become easier to lift or peel.
8: take a thick, disposable PLASTIC spoon (see my amazing diagram HAHA) and hold it upside down and begin to work it into the material, peeling it upward (the spoon replaces your fingernails and the pain associated therewith)
9: There will be residue left at this point.
10: Take your HOK Reducer and once again dab the area, wipe it away with a cloth after a few seconds, and you should be left will some haze (it will look like a fog on your clear coat)
11: Take some rubbing compound and work it over it, buff away.
12: polish the area with normal wax or scratch-fix.
13: ALL DONE
guys, this method was so easy I had my girlfriend help me, and she actually had FUN doing this. So go pick a lazy day and grab a buddy and you can literally bang out all your badges on your truck in about an hour and a half give or take. Thanks.
