Hi gang,
 
Need some help with the front and gas emblems.  I have both new ones but have not installed them yet.  I see only the gas emblems have screws but cannot find the front or do the fronts have screws.  I need to know how to get these off without doing harm to the paint.  Thanks for the awesome help.   Smile

The 81"s have two screws on the front.
If only sticky tape use 30 pound fishing line and saw back and forth under the emblem.

What if we don't have fishing line...  ehhhh....  Looking further the emblems have sticky tape on them.
 
BTW..  I still can't see the front screws on the emblem...  Angry

Hey Mike, use a heat gun to soften the glue, not too hot, don't want to hurt the paint.

I sope to Lew today (my Corvette guy) and he says there aren't any nuts. He says he uses a plastic putty knife to get them off.

Ive used the fishing line technique several times with success.  I think dental floss would do as well. The line cuts through the sticky tape and once the emblem is off adhesive remover does the rest of the work.

Mike good idea!
Only body men use putty knifes......cause they have putty to fill in the scratches Confused
Those two guide studs will be there so just work around them.
Oh and throw the floss away after or your teeth will be all black and gummy lookin.Big smile
Just sayin...........

Well I'm finished with the emblems.  Took me 1 hour to do.  The old glue took time to get off.  Here's the link.
 
 
Thanks guys for the help.  Cheers.

Just like to have the original emblems from it.  This way the vette looks better without fading emblems.

The rear emblum of the 1981 (gas cap) has a screw on type cap that holds it to the gas cap door.  The front emplem is stuck on the body.  I never got a "A" for my spelling abilities so I ain't goon start now!!  The dental floss works good on getting it off but makes your teeth look bad!!!
