Default How to?

What is the best way to take off the ranger logos on the side of the truck as well as the emblem on the tailgate... My truck is a 2001 ranger edge all black and I want to paint the chrome on the truck to get everything to go black as well as trying to take apart the emblems to go black as well. Any Ideas? thanks.

Hairdryer and fishing wire! Look in my albums on my page to see what the emblems look like black. If you have any questions on this ask me.

Is it easy to put back on? Im thinking about doing this will Black Plasti-dip. Ill just tape it off really well and since plasti-dip just peels off when you want it to, I can use a razor blade to clean the edges, etc.

Maybe its just easier to remove it though..

Get double sided foam tape, and it sticks back on and looks factory. I used a plastic putty knife, fishing line dug into my fingers and cut me.
