Trailhawk hood decal

Does anyone know if it can be removed, of course without damaging the paint?

As long as it is just a vinyl decal it can easily be removed without paint damage. Seeing as the vehicles are so new there is no worry about paint fade either.

The question begs though if you have a TH why remove it? It is a distinguishing feature.

I asked the same question on another board and was told it could be removed with no problems. It's just not my cup of tea...I have flashbacks of the screaming chicken on the hoods of late '70's Firebirds. But hey, whatever blows your skirt up.

Thanks for the info. I personally just don't care for the hood decal, but do like the rest of the TH package. Simply a personal thing that I'd rather not have to look at it every time I'm driving.

Yep, they charge you $150 for that pigeon dropping sticker on the hood. It CAN be ordered without.
Thanks to someone with a little taste.

Yes I noticed that, which is fine if you're factory ordering. The TH's at or coming into the dealers in my area all have it applied, hence my question if I were to buy one from a dealer's inventory.

Back in the day, I would have said you would have had to live with the sticker or the ghost of the sticker :>)
I'm depending on the "more up to date" fellows to be giving you the right poop.

I bought a new car that the dealer had slapped one of his stickers on the trunk. Hadn't been there where I signed the papers. When I ask him how much a year he was will to pay me to be his rolling advertisement he blew a gasket. It was removed but I lived with the ghost of his tantrum until I got rid of the car.

Just saying, some people don't realize streets go two ways. I never had to say a word, when someone asked how I liked the car and the service, I just walked them out to my trunk with one comment "I asked him to remove it." (pointing at the ghost)

There are a lot of things God may get me for, but I don't think that will be one of them.

The hood decal option was required to be added on all early models. The option for ordering without just opened up last week.

Just wanted to add when I asked a dealership for a price quote on a TH they informed me the decal could easily be removed without me asking if I didn't like it. I am guessing it is a semi common enough request.

I like it, but I liked the screaming chickens on the dirty birds too.

The FIRST thing I do to every new vehicle I buy is take the dealerships ugly frickin sticker off the back. No one wants that ugly crap on their vehicle.

Amen to that. When I bought my Mustang GT a couple years back they took it back to prep and clean it up. When I walked out to take delivery I saw they had applied their decal to the trunk lid. I gave the keys back to my sales rep and told him I wasn't taking delivery until that sticker was off the car.

Same thing with my wife's car and the licence plate thingy. Went in the trash before we even left the dealership.
