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.
