I'd say take 'em all off, it looks smoother IMO. The only reason I didn't is because of paint chips under them.

yeah i was also thinking if i wanted a cleaner look i could debadge and cut out GT's out of black vinyl and put them on , and i planned on putting the GT under the keyhole on the back, but with the vinyl it will lay flat and not stick out like the regular badges do,

i started by taking off dealer badge (obviously) and the ram air v6 badges since i don't really have ram air anymore. then after i washed and waxed the car a few times i said screw it and took em all off. the car looks a whole lot better and there's one less thing to detail. personally, i think badges are crap unless they are done creatively

no badges necessary, everyone knows what your car is. no cars should have badges, IMO.

No. No holes unless someone epoxied them back on. They have 3M double sided tape on them. Fishing line and some goo gone will clean them right up. Leave the car in the sun a bit to warm up the adhesive

hmmmph, i'd guess working fast isn't a bad idea tho? we use that stuff at work and it'll eat anything.

i've been known to presoak the 3m tape with windex, the ammonia eats at the sticky, helps them come off easier, never thought you could goo gone a car lol

One night a pizza guy hit my car on the way out and left a huge black scrape from where his paint came off on my car, i goo goned the hell outta it and it did great and nothin happened to the paint. :)
