Ya know what? I was thinking that exact thing as I was doing it and laughed to myself. "It doesn't say Camaro on the outside...people aren't gonna know what the hell this is anymore" haha

Took mine off the 2nd day I had the car....I know what kind of car it is...LOL

if you let the goo gone dwell for about 30 min...the letters literally fall off with dental floss.....but most of us are impatient and start using heat and tugging w/ fishingline...no need with a bit of elapsed time...

The black on black probably looks good. The chrome just looked odd. This looks better I think.

Looking good, I just did mine too! Took me about that long too. The letters come off easy enough, just all that damn adhesive left behind that's a pain to get rid of!

Ya know I didn't have that little "GM" square they look to put on cars now either. I'm glad, it would have just been one more thing I'd have to remove lol

I actually couldn't believe how fast the letters themselves came off...that sticky shit though. What a pain.

Goo gone now makes a gel..so it does not run down the sides of your car - it stays on the adhesive...so easy to get everything off...like I said above wait 30 min before attempting the remove, re wet at 15 min..

How was the paint under the letters? Can you see a difference in color vs the exposed surface?

takes years to get a fade...if you do it on a car 2-3 years old, I've never seen a ghost....it's not taking a direct UV hit like a trunk or roof....

Looks good! Sure is a lot easier to clean without the letters too.

Best regards,
