Anyone interested in a 997.2 GT3 badge? I bought one prior to delivery from Suncoast nearly a year ago and haven't installed it.

Just wondering how you remove the Porsche lettering and read here the GT3 without damaging the paintwork?

Hair dryer and fishing line. Heat up the lettering, and slowly pull the fishing line between the car and lettering. The letters will drop off. Then clean up residue.

Thanks, and any adhesive to glue the letters back on which does not come off with repeated washing?

I don't think you can put them back on, you need to replace them

I agree, and did this with mine. I like the simple, retro reference to the lineage of the car. I used the black script from the 993 Carrera.

Just to satisfy my throwback tastes, I've also ordered 2 meters of the Pepita fabric from the UK to have new inserts made from it for the LWBs.
