Customer Question

How do I get the tank logo (or casting) off my 1974 750 GT?
JA: Are you fixing your GT yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No, I want to prepare the tank for cleaning and a restoration paint job.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: thanks for asking that but I have to go at this real slow, so not ready to tackle anything else just now.

Hello, two methods that work are

1. Heat with heat gun (hair dryer works too) and use a putty knife with rubber mallet

2. Heat gun and cut out wire like this

When replacing I suggest 3m double sided emblem tape
