Default Debadge?

Has anyone attempted to pull off the corvette lettering on the back, stingray logos on each side and the flags front and rear?

I'm curious to see if they are attached simply with adhesive or if there are holes in the panels when they are removed.

Thanks guys!

Most manufacturers are using 3M double sided adhesive (tape) today. A piece of fishing line and a little patience will pretty much debadge anything these days.
I had the same thought about the rear badges.

The lettering and Stingrays are just stuck on. The flags have mounting holes, plus they lay in indentations.

The dental floss/fishing line side took a half hour to remove the adhesive (great stuff!) as most of it was left on the car. The badge on the other side was removed by heating with a hair drier and prying off with a plastic trim tool, about 10 bucks for a set at Harbor Freight - that side was clean in a fraction of the time. You could also use a plastic putty knife.

Not that bad for the letters in the rear and the little fish on the sides. the C7 logo's are a different story. however. A member with an AW has posted his with the rear letters removed and it was a piece of cake.
