    Removing CTS badge

    Only thing I don't like about the car now is the "CTS" on the back.. Is that just adhesive/heat gun territory, or are there some mounting holes under there?

    ^ what he said. I just heated mine up for a minute with a hair dryer. Then cut it off with fishing line. A little too gone, and the rest of the adhesive came right off. Did a little rubbing compound after. Can't tell it was ever there.

    CTS-V Z06-badge.jpg I didn't like the CTS badge either so I replaced it with a Z06 405 HP badge from a Vette. The pic isn't very clear.

    Ya, I thought since Caddy could steal the engine from a Chebby I could use their insignia.

    Re: Removing CTS badge

    I didn't need any heat removing my cts badge I used dental floss and was able to roll the adhesive off with my fingers and then hit it with a little polish and then wax and it's like it was never there.

    Has anybody took off the body molding? I'm curious what it would look like. I've searched on her haven't found any pics.
