Default Re: finally got that dealer logo off!

my dealer logo has a cartoon whale on it. Needless to say, it doesn't match the truck's style.

Another victory for goo gone. I swear by that stuff.
Fortunately, mine only came with license plate frames, but I'm gettin rid of them soon and replacing them with some tinted covers and stainless screws, since the factory ones are rusting.

I tell them the same thing, lol. I hate seeing cars with dealers logos on them. IMO it should be illegal to do without consent of the customer.

I snapped my truck up before they had a chance to sully it. They probably didn't even have it for a day.

reading this thread is funny because i've probably put hundreds of dealer stickers on cars on our lot. and i've taken countless off of cars. i agree, they're stupid. but hey, you can't talk the dealers out of it. it's stupid.

My dealer usually puts license plate covers, stickers on the tailgate, and their website across the rear window. They got the website put on the rear window and the logo on the tailgate, but they didn't get the license plate frame put on though.

on my old 96 F150,The salesman came in and said"we're gettin it gassed up and washed for you. So we went in and signed the papers, Then the truck pulled around ,the service guy jumped out and tried to hand me my sets of keys.I saw that they had stuck the dealer badges on it and I said Thats not the truck I bought. With a puzzled look he said arent you Mr so-n-so,I said yes but the truck I paid for didn't have that dealer logo crap on it.He wanted to argue "we put them on all our new purchases,company policy." I refused the keys again as he tried to hand them to me.I walked back into the showroom and found the salesman and told him the deal was off.He thought it was a joke,untill I told him the dealer crap comes off and when I was satisfied that the tape had not damaged the paint I'd continue with the sale.

good thing you got it off when you did... my grandfather never took the one off of my truck, so after 10 years it's damn near permantly bonded to the paint. i tried to flake it off and it took the paint with it.

oh well, sharpie to the rescue! gotta love a black truck
