Question QUESTIONS ABOUT DEBADGING!!

Well like you Im hoping and praying that all is well for the build of our beloved Camaro's.

As soon as I get mine I intend to debadge and cover the front with 3M clear bra etc.

The badges at the rear and sides should be easy to remove with fishing line etc and goo gone but the bow tie at the front, I've discovered will leave an indentation where the badge should be.

Any ideas what you would do to cover that up, or know of anyone that will do an aftermarket front grill replacent.

Your ideas will help me out no end, cos that's the one thing that is bugging me right now!

Thanks!!

there will be grill replacements soon after someone gets their hands on one of these bad boys i guarantee it, just wait for a couple months after it comes out and there will be some aftermarket grills.

Yep, the amount of aftermarket stuff, including grills should be amazing. It is for the Corvette. They know which cars get customized, and Camaro aftermarket will be huge.

I still haven't figured how to post pics on here. Why can't we just copy and paste?

If the pic is on a website click the "INSERT IMAGE" icon in the reply to thread (you may have to click the "GO ADVANCED" button). Then copy and paste the URL.

If the pic is yours you will need to upload it to a website of your own or a photo sharing site. Then do the above.

I know this is a real pain, but basically this prevents the forum servers being overloaded with pics that we could just hyperlink to. Hope that helps.

Use gasoline, I've used it on many cars and my Hayabusa to remove the decals and emblems, never harmed the paint and I washed the area right away.

No it won't. Look at their site. It is 100% guaranteed and backed by the company not to harm the clear or paint.

Can I use Goo Gone on my car or motorcycle to remove sap, tar, sticker adhesive and dried latex?

Traditional and Automotive Goo Gone formulas are safe to use on your car’s exterior.

I have always used plain old bug and tar remover, available almost everywhere and it's cheap... never had a problem with paint or clear damage... but do as it says and wash and wax the area after using it,
