Removing Dealer sticker/decal from the Camaro?

Hey Guys I'm just curious if you know how to remove the dealer decal/stick from the back of your Camaro? I'm sure you're going to want the dealer symbol gone from your car.

I have one on my cobalt and I'm afraid im gonna take off the paint if i just rip it off. Note it's a soft kind of plastic sticker thing, any advice?

Advice... Tell your dealer you want them left off from the get go. If for some reason they end up on the car anyways, remove them asap befor the sticker really settles in. Now a days, they are usually just vinyl decals, or stick on plastic logo

Take it off early for sure if its on there when you get it. I've used a hair dryer before to gently warm it up so less of the "goo" gets left on the paint. Usually only takes a few seconds of warmth to get the sticker loose enough to pull right off with minimal residue left on the paint. What's left can be simply rubbed off with a chamois or other semi-wet cloth.

yeah... as SOON as i got my MONTE SS home that was the 1st thing i did.
it was literally just vinyl... and most of it peeled off nicely. then, i gingerly got the adhesive off with a litte goo-gone or something else that was not harmful to the paint... it was easy and worked great.

i
HATE
the look of a car with the dealer decals and badges STILL ON.

Just ask them not to put it on. I have on every new car I have bought (4 cars) and no one has ever told me no. I suppose if they did, I would ask they pay me $100 a month for advertising on my car and see what they say.

Just tell them ahead of time that you don't want it on at all. No big deal. I requested this from my dealer, and he said they won't do that anyways and they treat the Camaro differently thatn other cars. Nice to hear

What? You must not follow the redneck manual. I would drive with it for like a year just to show off the sticker.

And yes... I have done that before.

The past cars I've purchased I have asked them to not put it on. Some get alittle pissy but just tell them you will use there dealer plate frame and that satifies them. if not I've heard the blow dryer works well. Friend uses it to remove his registration sticker from his boat every year!

Ask them not to put one on. If they are worth their salt in customer service, they won't make a big deal about it and they won't put one on.

If they do put one on after you've asked them nicely not to, before you hand them the check and sign the paperwork tell them to take it off or you are not buying the car. And make sure you tell them they are 100% responsible for any damage to the paint or metal if they damage it while taking it off.

If it comes to removing a 5 cent sticker or loosing a $30k sale, believe me, they will do a very meticulous job at removing your sticker.

Just tell them you dont want it on there. Most of the time they wont put it on there since you are buy a 30k+ car from them.

The only caution is not to overheat it with the hair dryer and if you use a razor blade exercise a lot of caution as the heat will soften the paint.

I wouldn't recommend a razor blade. It's too easy to slip up.

Gentle warming with a hair dryer and sliding waxed dental floss behind the emblem will work fine.

Do what we do at the factory when I have to fix an area. Fishing line. Slowly work it back and forth until the badging is off.

+1

I used a hair dryer, fishing line, and then Goo B Gone to clean it up a year after I got my car and it still came right off.

WD40, No hair dryer needed. Just let it Sit for about 5mins and pull it off slowly. Add more WD40 to losen more and more.

Took the Plastic one off my OLDs and Now my 97 GMC Sierra I just got after calling BUST.

I asked my dealer to not put their sticker/logo on the car and they said they wouldn't but I doubt they will remember. I also asked them to not install the front license plate because I do not want one on there.
