just wondering if anyone has removed the "focus" emblem off the rear hatch? is it just the regular double sided tape situation or are there alignment holes?

cheers

First day I owned my St I took off the 'Focus' badge.
It is just double sided tape. And dental floss will go between the paint and badge and cut off the badge easy. the tape remaining on the car rubs right off.

On my previous SE I took off the Focus and the SE.
I am leaving the front and rear 'ST' as I like it.

I want that clean look w/o the emblem and definitely leave the ST on. I just took the focus and ses emblems off my 2010 and the trunk looks so much better. It's a surprise how much it actually changes this look.

Thanks for your help

Dental floss?

I wouldn't have thought of that [idea]
That's a great idea, thanks! Maybe I'll do that this week-end. I like the ST badge but I'm not too keen on the Focus one.

I did the dental floss thing with the badges. Found it mucho easier by using a hairdryer to heat the glue holding the letters, then do the flossing. And you don't have to worry about blistering your paint so long as you pay attention to what you're doing.
P.S. I used mint flavored floss. [neener]

I personally prefer cinnamon flavored floss.

Have some goo-gone handy to help remove the leftover residue. And finish it off with a fresh coat of wax and call it a day.

If I had a ST, I would do just the opposite.
The (ridiculously large) rear ST badge would be gone.

Heh, I will probably just remove my Focus badge. After going to the Octane Academy, I'll take off the garish red one and place the one they give me there on in the same spot (it's some less attention-grabbing color).

What are the stipulations for getting in on the academy?
