06 Badges Paint

I started my 06+ badge mod today, got one coat and a wet sand done. It isnt going to be just black so stay tuned for the rest.

No idea, I have an 01 that I am doing this to. I can tell you how to paint that one, lol. and as far as getting the badges off, since I have an 01 I would say go to www.ebay.com and find some that have already been removed. lol

thats a pretty safe way to do it. The hair dryer shouldnt get hot enough to do damage to anything unless you leave it one spot for a LONG time. I heat up the ford emblems to get them apart and it works great with a hairdryer.

are you talking about the fender badge? Or are you talking about the Ford emblem in the front? If you are talking about the fender badge that says ranger use a hairdryer and heat it up. if you are talking about the ford emblem in the front I have no idea

Yeah just get a hairdryer and heat it up a little bit and then take a piece of fishing line and run it back and forth behind the emblem, the adhesive they use will soften with heat and then the fishing line acts like a cheese cutter and cuts in between the adhesive and the fender. You wont hurt the truck and if you are careful you wont hurt the emblem. I wouldn't use a heat gun because they get really hot. be patient with it and you will be fine.

Hairdryer (or heat gun) and fishing line. That's the easiest way. That's how I did it

The Ford emblem on the grill was a pain to take off. Must be some epoxy between that and the grill, I haven't taken the Ranger emblems off yet. I would like to black them out...I'll have to see how this thread turns out.
