Got a small ding in my tailgate that needs body work to fix, too big for paintless repair, plus paint cracked. Body guy asked if I wanted the badges back on, I think I'm gonna join the debadge club and have him leave them off and take the rest off while there. Just curious, do you guys/gals think the "platinum" badge should also come off? Debadge the way to go or no? I've never done it to a truck, but this is the time if any so I don't buy the tailgate badges. Thanks for your input in advance.
