I will be painting the hood and the Deere sticker on there is bad, so I will sand it off. But now I want to put a grill emblem on the grill just to make one member on this site happy. So where do I find on CHEAP. :thThumbsU

Now see, had you voted for me, there would have been a $322.45 Billion grant program to restore grill emblems.

Looks like you'll have to cough up the $15 on your own.

It's a good thing you are going to be replacing the emblem for you know what happens to the ones without the Deere emblem. A lot of them have not been heard from or seen since.

Oh I don't think anyone would notice if you left it off :howdy:

My own Nephew broke the grill emblem off the 160 after what 25 + years and a couple of PO's :banghead3
He actually said what's the big deal:00000060: No more KATT restorations for him. ( now that I just finished his LX188) :aetsch:

I did vote for you, it was the only vote you got. So now I got no chicken on new Deere and no emblem. But they say that guy that won. C-Catt is a real John Deere man.:sidelaugh

The emblem is a Deere dealer part, unless you get a used one off the internet. As to sanding off the hood decals. You might have an easier time of just peeling them off if you heat them up with a hair dryer first. I bought a hair dryer at a yard sale just so I don't anger the Mrs. It works fairly well on sticky back adhesive type stickers and decals.

Then Brake cleaner is good for the Gob-O-GOO that remains after sticker removal.. :trink40:

After beaning on there for 25 yrs I do not think there will be any adhesive or Gob-O-goo. Just very hard and dry. :thThumbsU

You'd be surprised what a little heat will do. I have yet to see any of the labels not peel off when some heat is applied carefully!

Just got back from my John Deere dealer. I ordered the grill Emblem. Boy that sent me back a whole $9.something. Just to keep someone off me butt. And I picked up a new front drive belt. Now the fun begins putting that on, I played **** getting the old one off, and now that I see how much more meat is on the new, Fun Fun Fun. Oh well someone has to do it.:thThumbsU

The hair dryer technique worked on my 28 year old Deere. You may think the adhesive is all dried up, but a blast of warm air can soften it up. Just trying to save you sanding and prep time.

I don't know your Mrs, so I have no opinion to offer (that way I can't be wrong, right?) I do recall a woman telling me once that "If a man is in the woods, and there are no women around to see or hear him, he will still be wrong." :sidelaugh:sidelaugh
