Well I finally had an entire day off, and I ended up being somewhat productive. I finally got the bawls to remove the door strikes off of my G5 and the car looks amazing without them. I had done this to my Sunfire a few years back, but I was being overly cautious on my new car. I would highly reccomend anyone who hasn't to do this. Heres the pics!

Car before:




Tools Needed to accomplish:

A hairdryer to heat up the badges.


A clean thumb to remove the excess residue.


A chair to sit on when removing badge and residue.


A Professional set-up like mine!


Removing the badge, you can see the residue that is left over after removing.





Heres how it looks after the badges are removed and most of the residue is gone. I will have to get some goo gone/bug remover to get the rest of the adhesive off.





Final After Pics!








Thanks for checking this out. I'll put up a how-to in the other thread in a few minutes!

I agree with removing the chicklets. Looks awesome though. Was that side panel only on the se versions??
I know the door moldings don't come on the GT's, so I'm guessing they are standard on the base models. I'm still trying to decide on the GM badges, as I kinda like them right now. Thanks for all the comments.

I want to do the same thing (i'll do it this week) but i need to know will it have some residu or scratch after the work is done? we dont see anything on the pictures but i'm still a bit surprise that you've done it as easy as that! Another question: I saw someone removing the pontiac and G5 on the back of the car and replace it elsewhere... how can i do that?

you can do one of a few things.

i just went to the dealership that i bought my car from and they gave it to me for free

you can also just go to an auto parts store and get epoxy or tape thats made for emblems.

the best brand for that is usually 3m

hope this helps
