Default debadge 12 express reg cab

Got rid of the ram 1500 badges today, used fishing line in a sawing motion to remove the emblems, the pulled the tape away at a 45 degree angle, used turtle wax sticker and adhesize remover. All told it took me an hour, no scrapes or damage to the paint.

Mine also left a shadow...but I washed like 5 times and it went away. Also when I sprayed the water on the door you could see where the badges were. But all that has cleared up

1st step wash truck
2nd step remove emblems and adhesive
3rd and most important step wax where the emblems were

there was no or little wax applied there from the factory so that paint is naked and thats why you could see it for a couple days when water was sprayed on the doors
