I kind of want to do some extreme aeromodding, and stuff like the 'zero emission' lettering on the side, as well as the Nissan badge up front really don't help. I'd rather just remove all lettering and external elements that aren't absolutely necessary for the basic functioning of the car. For aesthetic consistency also in places where it really doesn't matter for aerodynamics. I like a clean looking car.
I've yet to find reports of people doing this, does anyone here know of instances of people doing this?
Mostly easy on the two I've had (2012 and 2015); the lettering and badges are held on with soft adhesive you can "saw" through easily with dental floss or, better yet, monofilament fishing line (it's tougher). Any remaining adhesive can be wiped away; I've used WD 40 with no ill effects; just made sure to wash it afterward.
The front badge is more complicated. The charge hatch has a molded recess. You can still remove the badge but the recessed depression will be left behind. You could fill it of course.
