Hood badges
 
Best way to remove hood badges for painting bus. Are they pinned, bolted on or just glued on? 2000 International 3800, Dt466e. I can see the International one seems to be bolted but not sure on the others.

Slide a thin putty knife under the edge- don't pry upward go side-side, just see if its self adhesive foam you can cut thru. If you hit a pin or screw, you can feel it in the blade.

Like Rusty said with a putty knife. Just add WD-40 with that putty knife. If it is adhesive, it will soften if up and pull off pretty easily.

my hood has 2 holes on each side where if I had a logo plate it would attach. im guessing it goes through the hood and has 2 Hat-nuts on the back side.

International is not bolted. It has two little pegs that sit in the hood and the rest is glued down. Pry it off slowly with a knife or screwdriver.

In the '60's, people used to have fun with the 100/200 series Dodge trucks. You took off a "D" and an "E" on the front of the hood then rearranged the remaining big chrome capital letters to spell..."DOG". And yes...occasionally you would see one claiming to be "GOD".
