Removing the FLEX FUEL emblem...

Hey, I was going to try to remove the Flex Fuel emblem on the tailgate tomorrow, but wasnt sure if its a project I should tackle. Im worried that either when it comes off the paint will be noticeably faded, or that it wont come off clean and I will have glue residue that wont come off....

Anyone taken theirs off? was it pretty easy?

FWIW 2011 F250, purchased in Oct 2011

Thanks!

It shouldn't be an issue at all with the paint being faded with a truck that new and a 2 stage paint.

Most of the time they come off pretty easily with a little heat from a hair dryer and a plastic pry bar. Another way, but helps to have experience doing it before, you can use a thin solid wire and heat the wire and only heat an area as big as the emblem. Place the heated wire behind the emblem, but make sure you keep the wire pulled tight on the back of the emblem and away from the paint and go down with a sawing motion. Sometimes depending on the sticky tape that was used you won't have to saw at all. Always use a couple of layers of good masking tape around the emblem on the paint to protect the paint on the tailgate no matter what method you use.

The flex fuel emblem is a piece of cake to remove. I just used a length of dental floss and worked it back and forth between the tailgate/emblem. It took all of about 20 seconds to remove. A good, untrimmed finger nail is all you really need to scrap off the adhesive tape used to ad-hear the emblem to the truck. I've used this method to de-badge most of my previous vehicles with very little effort.

Lol, i ended up taking it to have some tint done, i asked the guy what he suggests to get them off, and before I finished my sentence he had already pulled it off.. no charge.
I just really hate doing anything paint related. We purchased a car from my mom a while back, and after trying to pull off stickers that were on there for years, i realized that they were stickers, but a magnet that had been on there for so long it physically adhered to the paint.

Cool, nice tips on that.

What about the Union sticker on the inside front windshield? that really bugs the crap out of me.
Hell, I pay someone to get that off, or have it removed by the dealer under warranty.

Any tips on that ?.

That sticker on the windshield should come off just like a brake tag or "inspection sticker". Scrapping it off with a razor blade should do the trick.

I just removed the Flex Fuel badge off my truck yesterday because of this thread. Just my wife's hair drier and some 4 pound test line from my fishing pole and it was off in a matter of minutes. Now the union badge I like so I will keep.

You can't. People have trashed visors trying to remove them over the years. I don't know anyone that's tried it on an '11 specifically but I'd guess they're just as difficult to remove...

The ones on my work van literally fell off in my lap, but the glue looks horrible. Its not a normal sticker, those things are like melted into the visor.

I took the union sticker off (I can't stand unions) as well as the flex fuel sticker, I used a razor blade and adhesive remover on the union sticker and sprayed adhesive remover on the flex fuel emblem and peeled it right off.
