    Well, I decided I was going to take my badges off anddo something totally different with it. Turns out though, when I go to take the ones off of the back, the normal sticky foam that is usually there was more or less an adhesive that had bonded to the paint. So no go on moving the emblems anywhere else. I then fgured I would paint them black and put the babies back on. I painted them black and est fit them. Liked it, but I figured, why not give it a shot of Speedway Blue with the black undercoat? Needless to say I liked it and here's how it turned out. I took some close-up pictures, but for some reason TW won't let me upload them... Feck.:mad: Either way, Enjoy!

    Yeah... I know how to get them off... The side ones came off easily. The back end of my truck was run into before I ever owned it. Whoever fixed it used that emblem adhesive stuff and it bonded with the paint... So at this poin, no amount of heat or chemicals will take the adhesive off without simply removing the paint as well. It's a bad deal, but I will just live with it for now. I like how this new idea worked out anyways.
