dealership's name is on my car.. how do i get it off

I bought my car back in Aug 04 . It was a demo and when i bought it had the dealerships name painted in small letter on the back trunk of the car (a decal i think). I hardly even notice it but just wandering how much would it cost to get something like that removed?

if it's a sticker decal, you should be able to use a blowdryer, heat it up, and peel it off.

you can use a hair dryer to heat it up and peel it off. shouldn't take too long. i took the long way and didn't heat it to peel it off. i wouldn't pay someone to remove it when it is easy to do it yourself

Park it so the decal is in the sun. 5 min and it will be soft enough to peel off

hold a hot pocket close enough to heat it up. while you're peeling it off, you can be munching too!!!

Yeah, even in the TX heat I'd recommend a hairdryer.

Cover it with Liquid Nitrogen then smack it with the back end of a hairdryer and it will crack into a few thousand pieces.

Park on a hill with the nose facing down the hill. Go to the rear of the car and super glue a piece of monofilament to the decal and tie to nearest object. Go back to drivers door and open, the place transmission in neutral and release handbrake. As the car starts to move, you will see the decal start to peel off rather quickly.

Not only does this method remove the decal, but if you have a loan on the car with GAP insurance, it will also remove your debt.
