There are numerous reasons people choose to remove the emblems from their cars or trucks:

  • Removing excess badges or emblems creates a "cleaner" or less busy look to your car or truck.
  • Less exterior trim work to wash, wax, or detail around.
  • Gives your car or truck a more personalized look that sets it apart from the masses.
  • To replace or update current car/truck badges or emblems.

Points to Consider When Removing Car or Truck Emblems

Many people will look at the car/truck badge removal process at a casual level and consider doing it themselves. Others will knowingly accept the fact that it is a job left to professionals with plenty of experience. In an effort to help you make an informed decision, I have laid out numerous car/truck debadging jobs on this site so you may come to the most appropriate decision for you and your world.

Step 1: Removing Plastic Chrome Emblem

The first step of the process is the easiest part of the entire processing of debadging your car or truck. With that said, it is also the point where many people make their very first mistakes and damage the paint with hasty attempts of removal.

Step 2: Removing Double Sided Tape

There will always be some kind of adhesive underneath that holds the actual car/truck badge or emblem to the body panel; this is usually double-sided tape. It is spongy and comes in various thicknesses. So depending on the type of car or truck being worked on, this spongy double-sided tape will vary. This are some important points to consider with this part of the debadging process:

  • Do you or the detailer you have hired know how to remove without any form of paint damage to the underlying paint?
  • Not all removal methods are created eqaul; with the right tools and techniques, this process can be rather straightforward. It can also be very time consuming and do much abrading of the paint if the incorrect techniques are used.
  • On light colored vehicles, it is easy to cover up improper removal techniques and you as the customer may be in for a rude awakening days or weeks later when this area hits the right light only to reveal that the detailer you hired left your paint scratched.

Step 3: Removing Residual Adhesive

Adhesive left underneath the double-sided tape will always be present regardless of the type of removal technique used to remove the double sided tape. It is hard to capture in a picture,but you should be able to see the remnants of adhesive and tape in the above picture. Just note that every step of the way leaves room for error for either permanent damage to your paint, or scratching that is not necessarily permanent, but would need to be fixed by a professional.

The Final Product of Removing Your Car/Truck Badges

This particular Dodge Ram had additional badges/emblems the customer also wanted removed; in this case it was an SLT badge and a

Dodge Ram Flex Fuel Badge

When it comes to debadging cars or trucks, it really comes down to a case by case judgement call as the the exact techniques you use in each step of the way. These bigger, more solid truck emblems actually can represent more difficulty in the removal process due to the size of the many badges one might find on a car or truck.

The SLT badge was hard, chrome plastic and must be lifted off carefully as it is a solid bigger piece with plenty of double-sided tape that holds this more firmly than the individual lettering.

The Flex Fuel badge was actually the soft, rubberized plastic material that is flexible and can be pryed off with your finger tips.

Debadge Dodge Ram 1500 Truck Summary

Since debadging a truck or car is generally about personalization by the truck/car owner, often people will pick and choose as to what they what car/truck emblems they want removed or not. I highlight these jobs to help people with a few key points for them to consider:

  • Which badges or truck emblems do you want removed for customization.
  • How old is your vehicle; the older it is, the more difficulty in removing and a permanent shadow may be left behind due to sun fading of surrounding paint.
  • Has any section of your car or truck in which you want debadged ever been repainted as extra care must be taken for repainted areas.

Darren took my 9 year old Acura MDX and made it spectacular! I believe his knowledge and attention to "detail" goes above and beyond!
Thank you!

Craig Leitch

I have been using Darren’s professional detail services, Auto Fetish Detail, for close to 15 years now and continue to do so. Darren has taught me and my staff just what real detailing is. Darren is incredibly meticulous and attentive to details. Whenever I have a customer who demands the best, I tell them to call Darren at Auto Fetish. I can always tell when Darren has detailed a car because the level of quality is like no other! He is not the cheapest guy in town, but you can’t beat the quality!

I have known and used Darren's services for 20+ years. I own Xlnt Tint of Anaheim inc. and see many cars every day. When we have a particular customer that needs top notch service, there is nobody else I would trust but Darren! He is very meticulous, and knowledgeable. If you are in need of someone who will take their time but most importantly bring over 20 years of hands on knowledge, this is the company for you.

"We have seen the work of other detailers in removing various forms of vinyl car decals and vehicle wraps. Often we have to spend additional hours due to the incomplete removal of old graphics, before we can apply new graphics. Save yourself time and aggravation by calling Darren first and have it done right the first time around; this is the way it should be done!"

"I just wanted to let you know that it was a pleasure meeting you on Saturday. You are a true professional and I find it very comforting to know that there are still people out there that take pride in what they do. "

My initial conversation with Darren at Auto Fetish Detail consisted of what his services would provide. Darren did exactly what he described to me and more. Darren detailed parts of the car that never crossed my mind to clean. Darren was promptly at the time, place and date we had agreed upon. Darren’s professional service and meticulous efforts made my car look better than the day I took delivery from the dealer. It was a great experience to deal with Darren and his professional service and work ethics.

"Darren- just wanted to let you know how great my Escalade looks each time you service it. Of course I love the convenience of your services, but what I really love is the quality of work! My husband and I have used other detail services in the past, but none of them spent the time you do on our cars. My husband has a critical eye and has remarked on numerous occasions regarding the quality of your work. With two teenagers and a regular carpool schedule, it is amazing how great the Escalade keeps on looking thanks to you!"

"Detail day is my favorite day of the month-I just love the way you make my cars look Darren!"
Theresa D.

I have generally used other mobile detail services in the past and continue to do so for what I call a normal detail job. But I met Darren through Exclusive Motors as we share the same building. My wife uses the Suburban to run our 3 kids around and it gets very dirty in the process. The carpeting and seating was extremely bad and I thought I was going to have to replace the both the carpeting and seating. I told Darren the other detailers in the past were not able to get the carpet and leather very clean. I was floored when I saw the results Darren was able to get! I tell people all the time that I have never paid so much for a detail, but that I have never had such an amazing job either! I send Darren to all my customers who simply demand the best, as Darren is the best!

My Mustang has never looked better; you did a fabulous job!
My daughter noticed how much time you spent detailing the Mustang today (something she normally would never be aware of) and asked how much it costs, I told her it is expensive and said I use Darren because he is the best detailer I have ever used.
Darren you do exactly what you say you are going to do, and do so every time!
I use you Darren because you conduct business exactly as I do!
Thanks again!"

I used Darren to take off a vehicle wrap on a Ford Econoline van of ours. Darren showed up on time and did a great job removing not only the decals but all the residue that was left from the glue. If you need a vehicle wrap taken off, give Darren a call.
