Use a blow dryer to heat it up, then use a fishing line or whatever thin and use a left right left right motion to kinna cut the black stuff up...I did it last night and I spend ages cleaning the black circle mark after the symbol has been taken out...
I replaced it with the cougar symbol from the front grill (cost me 16CND)...I guess I'm not used to the look, because the cougar one is smaller than the mercury one, and its also thicker.
ccc3 - can u post a pic of where the 3 holes r? or how far apart they r, and how they're lined up? I bought a Ford logo off of a Probe that I want to put on there, and want to make sure the logo will completely cover up the holes.
Sorry man... I was incorrect about the three holes... it's actually two... and I really can't post a pic cause I've already covered the holes with the cougar head. But I figure if the ford logo is at least 1 1/4" at its thickest, it will cover the holes.
When you go to put the Ford emblem on, just take some putty or silicon and cover the holes from the back side (this involves taking off the carpet cover on the hatch... remove one screw and pop all the little caps out to do it). This will seal the hole very well.
THe blow-dryer/fishing line method worked fine for me. Then I used some stuff called "GOO-GONE" that I got at wal-mart to get the adhesive off. Took about 20 minutes. Stuff worked great! I reccomend it to anyone looking to do this.
