Here's a quick Do it yourself removal of the "civic" badge. Things that you need are Dental floss, Cotton Balls and Alcohol. Using a long thread of dental floss, insert it between the emblem and trunk. Using a hair blow dryer, heat up the adhesive thats hold the emblem. Finally, Use a cotton balls and add a little bit of the alcohol to remove the resudue left over.

when I do any mod to the car, i try to be carefull as posible. Why in a hurry for? I'll rather do it and take my time than just removing that emblem and leaving some scratches and ruining the emblem. =)

I agree. Plus if you keep the emblem nice, you could put it back on later for re-sale value :laughing:

Just did this and it looks great. I did it slowly and it didn't even leave any marks to rub off. I was stoked since I suspect rubbing alcohol can damage the finish.

I had that problem when i washed my ex coupe. its cuz the water beads off the part where the adhesive used to be. However, it stopped doing it after a few washes.

btw, I removed my badge with only a hair dryer, and there was no left over residue. just pried it off with my fingers. i dont think floss is needed.
