I didn't like the "Discovery" on the front hood and rear trunk so I debadged the letters. (I also removed the "Sport" and rear "Land Rover" logo.) I like the clean look.

Anyone else debadged any part of their DS?

I think it makes the back look much cleaner and minimalistic. I want to do the same to mine. Are any special tools required or is it the customary sticky stuff to pry them off gently and slowly? I will keep the "Discovery" part on the front hood though.

Thanks,
Quark

It's just a simple double back adhesive that they used. However, I used a hair blow dryer to "soften" the adhesive for easier removal. I set the blow dryer to low and aim at a letter for about 20secs. then I used an old credit card to pry off the letter. There will be some sticky residue but I used duct tape to remove it, using a side motion like "swiping" at first (don't go perpendicular as that won't do anything) then when the residue is minimal, perpendicular is fine. Once all the letters are removed I used a damp lint free cloth for the finishing wipe.

Another trick I learned is to use a thread pull straight from each hand, slice it under the letter from one side to the other. It's quicker and won't scratch the clear coat at all

Interesting... :eek:

It certainly does give the car a cleaner look. Don't mind the front - it looks pretty good but having a difficult time with the back. Something just seems missing.

Thanks for sharing with us.

:nerd:

Personally, I love the badgeing. I like that people guess about ....what the h.e.l.l. Is a Discovery?? Until they see the Land Rover green ovals. Even tough there's a ton of badgeing I think it's very well done and tastefully done.
