    Optima Badge Removed from Trunk Lid

    Just thought I'd offer pics in case people are thinking of doing it and wondering how it will look.

    When I did mine it was so easy. Did mine about a week after buying and the adhesive came off easily with no heat and no extra effort. It was just like pealing off stickers.

    I just got my optima a week ago, I parked the trunk facing the sun and after 2 hours I was able to just peel them off slowly. Total removal time was around 10 minutes.

    Bummer OP, I thought you were gonna show what your trunk lid looked like with no badge at all. I'm about to do mine, and was curious what the surface underneath looks like with no badge. Are there pins to help with badge placement?
