    Need some help. The previous owner of my 348 put the stick on SF fender badges a little lower then I wish to have them or feel they should be.
    Does anyone know how I should remove the badges so I can put my new ones on?

    I would try heating it up with a hair dryer or a heat lamp (carefully), then try to slowly peel off the sticker.

    You can use an automotive "tar & bug" remover liquid to get rid of any sticky residue left on the paint.

    Michael,

    Are the shields on your car the really thick resin type stickers, or the basic thin vinyl ones?

    Just add some 3m adhesive remover or Goo Gone and with a thin fishing line work it in to the top of the shield then slowly pull out towards yourself. After your'e done, wash and wax the area.

    I say use something that is also paint friendly..and once u take the badge off im sure the color of your car will be slightly different due to the sun's fadeing affect of the original paint.
