Debadging a Falcon

I wanna get rid of the big ol` 'forte' badge on the back of my falcon, aswell as the shitty little dealer stickers it has on it this weekend.

Just want to know, is there a proper way of taking them off? I don't want to leave any unsightly marks or anything.

I got a nice big ugly hexagon with "BRYAN" on it (Byran Burt Ford in Brisbane). I know it's been on there since it was new, and I just wanna know how to take it of properly without leaving any marks etc that it was ever on.

Cheers

Re: Debadging a Falcon

heat + fishing should remove it without damaging paint.
Is there any holes behind those badges?

I used to work in a video shop, and we used this spray and a small scraper which did the job on videos...

Re: Debadging a Falcon

Can't help you with an answer to the "holes behind the Forte badge" question, but for badge & sticker removal leaving a clean surface i hit the adhesive with a hair dryer for a few seconds to soften it, then after slowly removing it any left-over residue will lift easily with a cotton cloth and some eucalyptus oil (and a little elbox grease).

I go a little further and make it clear I wont accept delivery of the car if there is anything like that on it, when I am signing the contract. It's never been an issue for me after that.
