The red shows the Kia badge with 4moulded plastic `half arrow` clips inserted in to the (black) bodywork. (2 top ones are more towards the top of the K and the A where the lower clips are just to the side of the letters)
The blue arrow shows where I inserted a flatblade screwdriver and using a cloth to protect my paintwork, prised it out. (I say that but I ended up snapping most of the clips, but I know of another owner that managed to remove it intact)
Nope not ashamed at all, I love the fact it's so good looking and it's a KIA.
I debadged the rear as I have with previous cars purely for a clean look, plus polishing around badges is a pain.
The KIA badge stayed due to it being in a recess until I came across the link for custom badges, as they were do as you please I thought I'd go for something a little different and chose my forum/nickname.
I now have a ProCeed badge on the rear and also added a Kia-Forums decals to the rear quarter windows - totally proud of KIA ownership.
Hi Just a tip that I stumbled across, when trying to get inside a Sly remote, a case of being so obvious!! but why on earth had I never of thought of it myself before. Over the years having broken numerous gagets.
Apply a little heat to the component , with a hair dryer.
And bob's your uncle.
