Debadged Fit rear?

I'd like to debadge my '07 Sport. It's got the Mugen badge up front tho, so I'd like to keep that. Wanna get the Hobda emblem and Fit emblem taken off the back tho. However, since the boot hatch is bevelled to accentuate the Honda emblem, it'd prolly look like trash.

Anyone have any pictures of a debadgd rear end?

You can get a replacement hatch garnish to remove the Honda logo but I personally think it looks kind of funky. Definitely take off that Fit emblem, though! Looks so much better without it! Pics are around, but I'm feeling too lazy to track them down for you...

I took off the Fit emblem on mine, it's not hard. Some fishing line, goo gone, a shop towel, and about 15 minutes. And replacement rear panels made with no 'H' on them look pretty decent - but I haven't seen one with fitment that impressed me very much. And I just ordered a replacement front grill piece off eBay to debadge the front, no idea if it's any good though.

There are lots and lots of pictures of debadged Fits, just search around.

The front of mine has the Mugen badge, so there's no way that's getting removed.

Instead of debadging the H emblem, I'm thinking of spray painting it matte black after debadging the Fit.

I trashed the FIT logo and painted the "H" badge matte black! I love it, its so clean. And I wouldnt use goo gone or what ever the "F-word" its called that ish eats clear use 3M rubbing compound that works the best and stick with the fishing line!

get some fishing line or floss and slide it back and forth between the emblem and the car. then once it comes off, just use some product to clean off the residue. 3M rubbing compound, goo gone, etc

it also helps with either using a heat gun carefully or leaving the car out under the sun for a while. it makes the removal of the emblem with the fish line easier since the adhesive behind the emblem would be softened by the heat.

You can also use a hair dryer to heat up the emblem and soften the adhesive before using the fishing line/floss to remove it.
