Default Tailgate Badge

I am going to have my Grille and Tailgate badgess painted but only want to paint the chrome portion. I have discovered the front badge is two pieces with the black background removable during painting.

Is the tailgate badge two pieces as well? How does it attach to the tailgate...tape or fasteners? Do you have to remove the tailgate access panel to get it off?

Any info and tips appreciated.

Pretty sure the tailgate badge is held on my double-sided tape like the past years.

It's got double sided tape holding it on.

Easiest way I've found to remove emblems or badges without messing them up is, heat it up with your wife's blow dryer to soften up the glue, then take fishing line and work it behind the badge like a saw.

That way you don't mess up the paint or the emblem by prying it.

Good luck and can't wait to see this mod.

The pins are just there to align the badge. Just to make sure it's straight and speed things along on the assembly line

Others were talking about this: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=40639, and they also say there is an indention in the tailgate where the badge was? Anyone on here got curious enough to actually take the '09 badge off?
