Car got keyed, taking it into shop to get fixed. I am going to have the shop debadge the car. I am undecided about the large shield and wreath on the front grill.

Thanks in advance.

I don't think you can, I think it's all one piece/part all molded together. If you were to take it off you would stil have the backing there. I don't think there is any "gill" behind it.

On the subject of debadging, the wreath on the back trunk is just adhesives correct. There's no holes there?

Nah, they don't use holes anymore. It's all double-sided tape.

what I meant is the front wreath is molded into the grill. It's not a separate piece is it?

I debadged my truck lid of the CTS and just left the V badge. So there's no mistaken my caddie is as a V, not a 6 banger cts.

I like the trunk lid, I plan on getting both painted black, leaving the colored center. Think it looks awesome.

I think I'm gonna do a different shade, but yes like yours.

and I just looked, it appears the front wearth is a separate part but they molded the grill to mate for the tape, so it will still look like it's there I think.

Remove the wreath off the front grill and you will be left with a hole in the grill about the size of the wreath.
