Well, I debated long and hard for quite some time about this, but finally got rid of the Corvette tonight. Honestly, I should have done it sooner. And to top it off, it wasn't that hard to do either. I'm really happy!





Here's the process I used...

1. Sprayed 3M adhesive remover along and over the script.

2. Let the 3M adhesive removed sit for about 5 minutes.

3. Sprayed 3M adhesive remover along and over the script again.

4. Took dental floss and ran it between the script and the body in a back and forth sawing motion. The dental floss cut right through the softened adhesive.

5. Removed all of the script, then removed all of the black part of the backing from the car with my finger. The only thing that remained was some of the clear adhesive.

6. Sprayed the 3M adhesive remover on the remaining adhesive and wiped the adhesive off the car. It took doing this step three times to remove all of the adhesive.

The entire process took no more than 15 minutes.

Well that was an interesting way to start a thread as I was wondering why would anyone get rid of their Corvette? Were they crazy!

Nice clean look.

So you speed money to get rid of the corvette emblem then spend more money to put it on your plate just below where you spent money to do away with it. What's wrong with this picture. DUH???

The rear fascia of the Corvette, for generations, is often the dirtiest panels. Especially for those of us who are not happy parking it at the end of the day dirty, the "Corvette" letters on the rear fascia are a pain in the neck to keep clean, e.g. Q-Tips, soft brushes, etc.

Personally also like clean look of rear fascia without the lettering. Removing the fascia's Corvette letters will be one of my first mods on my VY Z06.

The basic answer is, "Yes!" Nothing wrong with the picture at all, actually. MY car. MY money. I think that just about says it all. :D I didn't exactly break the bank spraying a few shots of adhesive remover on the car and then taking a strand of dental floss out of the bathroom to use to remove the script. LOL

I like how it was debossed into the rear fascia on my C4. Much more subtle and classy. I wish the still did that.

Looks like you now have the first C7 with a vasectomy :)
