    Did the same thing on my '15 1500. Took both door 'ram 1500' billboards off, used some goo off, washed truck, Polish compound then waxed the areas. Wound up waxing the whole truck!

    Not sure if I want to take the hemi badges and the tailgate big horn and 4x4 badges off.

    Ok fishing line - all I have available is the braided line not mono. Do either types of fishing lines work?

    Does fishing line work well without heating up the emblems? I have always heated them prior to removal.

    Took the bill boards off the doors and stripped the B-pillars. Then found out the hard way that the giant black "RAM" on the tailgate has to stay. Damn it! Each letter has posts and the tailgate has holes.

    Used an eraser wheel for the first time today. That is not for the faint of heart. Lol.

    Twice some stubborn adhesive had me thinking I had f**ked up my clear coat. After a few deep breaths I hit it again with the eraser and it disappeared.

    I finished up with Goo Gone Auto, wash, Meguiars Ultimate Compound and a spray detail. Glad it's done. I'll post pics in a separate thread.
