    Really, WD40 doesn't harm paint? I can't WAIT to do this, then! Just to confirm, when you say "spray the back of it" you mean just spray the logo, period?

    Any ideas on removing this one? It's not really that noticeable from a distance, but I'd rather not have it there for the rest of the car's life. It seems to be some sort of metallized plastic, or maybe thin metal, and I don't think WD-40 would penetrate. It is so thin I can't get a fingernail under it, and I'm sure using a razor blade would be a huge mistake.

    In 1967 I ordered a new '67 Mustang fast back and had it clearly specified on the contract 'No Dealer Tag'. Back then this particular dealer drilled two holes in the deck lid to add his logo. When the car came in, there it was with his logo on the trunk. I refused delivery till the dealership got another yellow fast back and traded out the deck lid. I won't even keep their license plate frame on my car. If they are willing to pay me a monthly fee we can talk about it.

    In the past, I have used a hair dryer to heat up the decal and a credit card to scrap/remove it when it gets soft.

    Just got our new plates yesterday, and off went the paper placards and the plate frame with the dealer name on it. Glad that many dealers are just doing the plate frames now, instead of the decals. Much easier to remove.

    If your dealer puts decals on, tell them to remove them before you take delivery of the car. If any one is going to screw up the removal it would be better them than you after you get it home.

    Great tip! Good way to hide sharp edges of license plate

    I have used hair dryer also to heat up decals & then peel off. Also, WD-40 will not harm paint
