I want to debadage my car and tried searching google and a lot of the sites say use bug/tar remover with a hair dryer... anyone have any other success with other products or methods?

Be forewarned though. Your rear Honda "H" has two pegs that keep it centered that go right into your trunk. If you remove the rear "H" then you'll have to two lovely little holes into your trunk.

Thanks for the heads up, just planned on taking off the Accord lettering... did you find that out the hard way?

Yessir. Then I just said.. YOU KNOW WHAT JUST REDO THE WHOLE D*MN THING. So I had a body shop take the trunk off, JBweld the holes, sand them down, and completely repaint the trunk. Then match it with the rest of the car.

Beautiful job in my opinion and it does leave my back end 100% debadged. But it was a little pricey for something so trivial. Oh well! :dunno:

That's what I did to. Just pull it off carefully letter by letter. I bought Goo be Gone with a plastic scraper. After that I used scratch X and then waxed. Looks great!
Dental floss or fishing line with a blow dryer is a much better method. No scratch remover needed, just a little adhesive remover and a bit of wax. It's also a very quick, easy way to do it.

I just used a blow dryer and floss... i used my finger to remove the excess glue... I did it when the car was a month or 2 old tho... Idk if it'll leave a "tan" mark (for the lack of better words)

Question, so while blow drying it and using fishing line or floss do you remove it like your flossing your teeth but like in a up and down motion while moving toward the center of the emblem? I just dont want to accidently scratch my paint trying to remove it.
Also will it leave a 'shadow' of the ACCORD because its been a year I had the car and its been through hell and swirls. Going to do a full detail in the summer going to take it through another winter.
