Changing Skoda Yeti Tailgate Letters

sticky letters on car
I have already de-chromed the rest of my Yeti so these remaining Silver letters have to go.
Let's change them for Black.

I found ones that suit my style online and ordered them. They arrived fast.

Let's get the old silver letters off and the new black letters on.
Some masking tape gives me a straight line.

The masking tape also prevents scratching from the plastic pry tool

Now all of them are...

The only thing I trust to scrape off this old sponge and glue without leaving scratches is my nail

I use a damp cloth to clean the area.
I will place my new letters below these spots I am marking.
I use my Yeti pen from the glove compartment. 😀

These new letters do come with sticky backing but for added piece of mind I will use dabs of Pattex Extreme Repair.
I've used this on other things and I have had complete success with it.
It isn't instant like Super Glue, but within an hour or so it hardens and then whatever it's sticking isn't going anywhere. 💪

First letter on.
I will use masking tape below the letters to stop them sliding downwards.

Around 30 or so minutes later, and...

Just a heads up: many of my posts contain affiliate links of products I have bought for my Yeti.
If you buy something from one of these links, you will not pay a penny more.
I will get a small commission, although not every time.
The extra pennies help me to pay the annual cost of the domain name.
I thank you for your support.
