#101 of 150 put an alternative "fish" on the car, then
Dec 30, 2005 (12:51 pm)
lots of alternatives like the "ixnay" or the "cat" at http://www.evolvefish.com/fish/emblems.html... or if you mess up the Jesus-fish removal, you can hide it with another one
not all are polite, so use that criteria in deciding whether to view. none are really awful.

#106 of 150 paint differences on removing decals?
Aug 06, 2006 (7:42 pm)
ok, this was asked a few times in this thread and I don't think it was answered. i am looking to purchase a 2003 black toyota tacoma.the truck is beautiful, paint seems to bee in nice condition- BUT it has really ugly decals on both sides.
I have seen how to remove them, but at this point what I want to know is what will the paint job look like removing decals from an older vehicle? Worse than the decal would be a darker black in the shape of said ugly decal.
anyone have ideas, experience with this?
#107 of 150 Removing BMW 5 Series Numerals
Oct 09, 2006 (12:41 pm)
I have a 1992 BMW 525i and I wanted to debadge it. I wanted to take off the "525i" from the back of the car, but before I do so, I wanted to make sure I do it right without ruining the paint.
Can anyone give me some good advice on how to do this properly? I dont know how the BMW numbers are glued/pinned to the car, so I dont even know where to start.
Oct 25, 2006 (7:13 pm)
Something to consider before you do this is the age of your car. If you have the factory paint, it will be a lot lighter than what's behind the decal. I like to debadge too, but I've never tried it on a car older than a couple years.
Having said that, if the badge is raised, try the fishing line technique listed in the posts above. Run into resistance and you've got a pin to remove and a hole to fill. Good Luck!
