How to remove rear H emblem and bumper reflectors?

Has anybody removed the rear trunk Honda emblem and bumper reflectors? I'm having the tail lights lightly smoked next week and was wanting to have the bumper reflectors smoked to match the tails. Planning on having the rear honda emblem painted black too! Any help will be greatly appreciated

Typically the [H] emblem can be removed with some dental floss or fishing line. Don't know if there are alignment holes behind the emblem, some models have them, some don't.

Collegehill Honda said I had to remove the rear trim on the trunk to remove the emblem. So does that meant the painted part that goes around the tail lights on the trunk has to be removed? I sure hope not lol.

I would love to see pictures of this once it's done! What color is yours?

My car is white and I will post pics once everything is done I figured out how to get the emblem off. You have to remove the trunk liner and remove 4 black 8mm bolts and release the 4 green push pins on each end. Carefully push up on the corner by the tail lights to release the 2 clips securing it to the tail light. There is 1 white push pin in the center with a philips screw. This will allow the whole piece to come off the car to remove the Honda emblem.

How would you remove the name that the dealer added under the Sport wording? The dealer I bought from adds matching Silver"Sisley" under the Sport emblem. Do I use floss and how do I prevent paint from coming off? Color is also white.

Heat it up with a hair dryer and peel it off. If it leaves residue you can remove that with 91% rubbing alcohol! I removed all the emblems on my wifes car today with dental floss and finished up with rubbing alcohol to remove some adhesive. Looks much cleaner this way to me!

Thanks. You mention hair dryer. Once heated is that then followed by the dental floss?

I just used my fingernail to get it started. When I removed the Accord and Sport emblem I just used dental floss and no hair dryer.

We always do this as well. I don't like all of that clutter, and our dealership uses a fairly large badge too. Too much!

Got the tails back on the car but it got dark so I had to take garage pics so they are not the greatest. Pics still make them look darker than what they really are.
