Take em off and toss them, or just paint over them.....



but I just told my welder buddy who is on the road working in Pittsburg and freezing his ASS off now....well he said to NOT sand my car, as it would turn out worse than it is now, on account of I ain't got the PATIENCE.....


he IS right, I know.....actually it's more the repetitive motion on the hands/joints....kneeling/sitting next to the car....

push a few razor blades between the emblem and the paint, it'll come off.... heat will help but shouldn't be necessary....

Try a razor blade to strip the car before you sand too much, I really liked that method best.

The 74 has speed nuts on the backside- check there before you go digging around with a blade.. Ol' Red ain't got no stinkin' badges.

Kevin,

Get a piece of plastic strap that they use when banding a box. Slide it under there with a back & fourth motion. It will take it right off. That is what they use at the body shops.
