Default Debadged my Scion, sort of...

I took off the rear xB badge, took me about 20 minutes. I first sprayed it with some Stoner's Bug & Tar Removal spray, then used some dental floss to loosen it off. I rubbed the rest of the adhesive with my thumb while spraying more Stoner's onto it. I washed the area and will wax it after washing the entire car sometime this week.

I was thinking of removing the Scion badge, but I like it how it is.

Looks good. I was actually thinking about doing the opposite; taking off the Scion badge and leaving the xB.

As for the tail light painting, I'd vote for the second one. The one with the red going around the reverse light.

I actually like the 3rd one best... looks the least like an Astro's tail light And cleaner looking overall. You should try doing that with Max2k's technique...

WOW! 20 mins just to take the xB badge off!? Looks like somebody went around their elbow to get to their bum hole. Took me only 2 minutes with a blow dryer and a bit of goof off for the remaining tar.

I love the debagged look. I am planing on taking the xB and Scion emblems off the hatch of my box.

Boxes look great guys.

I think I like the tails in pick # 3 down......the best
