That looks hot! Are they made by Subaru or an aftermarket company?

Those badge are pretty cool, how do they attach?
The last experience I had with badging was trying to take the tank badges off a 1972 Triumph motorcycle, they were riveted on! :evil:

They use the same incredibly sticky foam stuff that the OEM badges use. They come in a package that holds the individual pieces in place until you stick them to the car so you don't have to worry about aligning each letter.

Carbus huh? :) I still think the best badge doctoring was an old piece o' crap RANGE ROVER that was changed to hANG. .OVER :lol:

To reattach 'em, you might check at Autozone to see if they sell that double-sided tape. That's the sort of accesory I'd not be surprised to find there. :-?

I just debadged my car today. My brother and I used a heat gun to heat up each letter of the S U B A R U, then used fish line to take them off. After that, we took off as much of the big adhesive 'chunks' we could by hand then dabbed Goo Gone(dont worry this will not hurt your paint) to remove the rest of the adhesive. After that, we wiped everything clean and gave it a good coat of Zymol liquid wax to finish the job. As you will see, it turned out flawlessly.
