Default help! peeling "chrome" on lettering

I just bought my used '02 Almond Touring Edition a week ago after looking for 4 months. I love it but... after the first gentle washing the "chrome" has started to lift off the plastic lettering on the Touring Edition lettering. Is this common? Is there a remedy? Any help would be appreciated. [xx(]

Never heard of it. But there are two, no three things that can be done. First if your Cruisers warranty was transferable and your milage is under 36K, take it to the dealer and have them replace it. Second, if no warranty the lettering is cheap. Third, have you considered taking the lettering off?

The same thing happened to my Stratus R/T. I just took them off and it looked better. I would talk to the dealer tho and see what they can do.

....or this is your opportunity for custom lettering. Ask CREWZIN for help. His is neat![?]

P.S. If the previous owner used automated car washes, this tends to loosen the "chrome".

That is one of the reasons my baby is naked now. The emblems ( All )are nothing but glued on pieces of plastic. Besides it gives the car a much cleaner look without them

Thanks for all the information and advice. It threw me a little at first, but I'm thinking you're right...take 'em all off. Any hints on a safe way... heat gun? Thanks again for all your help!

Use a Hair Dryer on low and some dental floss and a little patience.The one thing you don't want to do is get the area too hot Just get one letter warm and slide the floss under the letter and each letter will drop off. Once your done use something like Goo Gone to get the rest of the glue off.
