    OK guys I just joined thanks to my buddy steve for letting me know about this, and now i have a question on how to remove the old badges and the glue and reinstall the new ones which i think are pretty nice. Only thing is I forgot to order the new style for the tailgate as well whichi may just take them off and leave it that way. I know unit453 did it to his but i am retarded and forgot whathe told me.

    I would use a hair dryer to heat up the glue behind the badge. Then take fishing line to remove the badge itself. After the badge is completely off use some adhesive remover to get the rest of the sticky glue off. After all said and done I would then use some alcohol prep pads to make sure everything is good and clean.

    I used fishing line but it kept breaking, mainly because I'm retarded and didnt buy strong enough line. I used adheasive remover...In copious amounts...Took about 20 minutes per side.

    Try using the braided fishing line like Fire Line it's small dia. and super strong. If I snag one of my jigs I wrap a wood dowel around the line and it straightens out the hook...:D

    The 3M magic eraser wheel is AWESOME for getting rid of the glue.

    For you guys that have switched to the NBS badges, how did you guys level the letters now that they are separate from eachother unlike the GMT-800's were? I'm guessing a level piece of masking or blue painters tape to reference and make it look stock?
