Porsche Crest Porsche Logo on Side of Car

I just got my 2nd 914. It's being transported and I haven't actually seen it in person. This car has the word Porsche on the sides & I would prefer less flash.

Does anyone know if these are decals & peel off or are they usually painted over & I'm stuck.

If they do peel off, has anyone done this with good results?

Any tips would be great...............................Vern

Use a heat gun or a hair dryer and get it nice and warm and start at one side and work your way across. It should be a decal. After you get it off, you will need to take some rubbing compound and rub that entire area out, With any luck, there wont be any paint fade where it was. I still want to see pictures. Try not to use a razor blade as it will scratch the paint. Use a hard plastic knife if you need to otherwise, use your fingernail.

I'll send you a picture as soon as it gets here. Believe me, I'm anxious!. It's scheduled to arrive in California (at the trucking terminal) on 10/22 an will probably take a few more days before it gets to my house. I'm really hoping for no rust but I will take whatever comes. If it turns out to be a complete rust bucket, I at least get a new 2.0 & fuchs for a $25 raffle ticket.

Perhaps polishing compound would be better than rubbing compound. Careful with the heat also. 2cents, Pete

I would Leave Them On,Less Chance On Screwing Up The Paint,I Owned My 914 For Over 28 years,I Had Them Painted On/Now Wish I Didnt Have Them On,Also I Put On The Rear Reflector Kit On In The Mid 70,s And The Tornado Mirriors Both Sides,I think 914 Look Better Plain Not Flashy,They Have A very Classic Body Style And When New They Were State Of The Art.
