ok so i did it..... took about 30min time in total. I purchased a adhesive remover "Krud Kutter" ultra power, used dental floss, and a hair dryer for one side only(cord didnt reach). I blow dried while using a floss to go behind the letters once a letter came off, I rubbed with my fingers to get out as much adhesive as I could with my hands. once there was just a little of an outline I applied the adhesive to a cloth and gently rubbed away removing adhesive then I would (using a bowl of water and car soap, and a sponge) clean the surface of the letter adhesive I just removed. I did this exactly the same for each letter. worked out great, letters come off easy with the floss. Take a look

Looks good I used rubbing alcohol to remove the 3M tape residue. Did a DIY thread on it here.

Need a little help I removed the dealership decal on the trunk of my camaro used some 70% rubbing alchol to take of the advesive that was still on the car got it removed. I can kinda of see where the decal was at still should I use an adhesive remover that is safe for the car to remove the outline or try to buff it out using a non abrasive wax. thx for the replies.

I would use some Goo Off. If you still see any outline, then you might try some "Revive Polish" by Adams (I use Adam's products, so that's the one I know will work). Then put on some wax.

I would assume the GM chicklets on the front fenders would take the same process. Heat them, fishing line or dental floss. Pull them off, adhesive remover, and wax?

Wow, this car looks really good without all the emblems. I'm going to do this also.

Cool.

Now I think you should get some chrome letters that say CAMARO and put them on the front quarter panel just behind the wheel wells. That would look awesome.

Wasn't liking it on SIM and SG but on IOM it looks awesome, looks meaner for some reason.

I agree....it's because that chrome isn't there to distract the eye from the tough stance of the car.

Hey Abygale:
Your paint color looks good "badgeless". Mine is CGM and I actually bought additional Red "SS" badges (they match what's on the front and rear) and placed them just below the Camaro lettering - cause my paint color "just needs something". Maybe when my gill vinyl arrives that will give it some "ummphhh"..

I think you are going to really like those gill accents. If that isn't enough, there is another accent people were putting over the black fades (a bolder outer outline) that looked really sharp on SIM, and it might look really good in CG as well.

It's definately a cleaner look but it looks fatter without the letters. Kinda like a Challenger.

I think the letters actually improve the stance. Gives the illusion of it being lower. jmo

Next Step...

I want to go the next step further and put on the '69 script emblem. I already have them, however they have studs on the back side. Any suggestions on how to install these? I could remove the studs, but the script emblem looks like its too thin to go with the 3M double sided adhesive tape and they also are not solid on the back side. If I dont remove the Studs, I'll have to drill through the fender, which I really prefer NOT to do. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Mike
