                        Step 2:   

                      • a. To achieve best placement of the new emblem, 1st you need to use blue painters tape to lay down a tape guide by framing in the old emblem with the tape. This is a square around your old emblem to help the placement and orientation of the new emblems.

                        b. To remove old Emblem, heat old emblem with a hair dryer and slowly peel the old emblem off. (In some cases a small wire (fishing string or dental floss) can be used to get under old emblem to help ease it off)
                      • WARNING: DO NOT USE A HARD OR METAL TOOL 
                        This can damage your paint

                        Step 3: Use Adhesive/Glue remover to remove adhesives left on the area (Please read product warnings)

                        Step 4: Clean the area with isopropyl alcohol with a clean towel, let dry

                        Step 5: This is where your careful measurements and laid out outside border of blue painter’s tape are used as “guides"

                        Step 6: You get ONE shot at this, use the tape Guideline as reference and place the Emblem within the taped area, making sure to be orientated the correct way

                        Step 7: Hold Emblem in place for 30 Seconds to help the bond, then remove tape and clean any fingerprints with a towel
