Removing Badges

How do you remove badges "PROPERLY" off the side of a car??? and when they are removed do they leave crap/left over glue on the paintwork???
Thanks

Re: Removing Badges

i assume you're talking about an EA-ED.

if so, you can just pry them off with a screw driver. just be careful not to damage the paintwork.

I've also heard of people using dental floss, but i've never tried it...


It shouldn't leave any glue behind.


Cheers,
Dave

Re: Removing Badges

i boil up the kettle , pour over badge and then twist off, then the glue will roll into balls under ur thumb and may have to use some MEK to remove any gooey stuff.

Re: Removing Badges

It's a double-sided, rubber tape. You can buy it from any auto store, bunnings, etc.

The one I buy is about $15 for a roll. It's called "body moulding tape" and holds 27kg per square inch!


Cheers
Dave

Re: Removing Badges

The left over glue will come off easily with a heat gun.

Re: Removing Badges

I just recently removed the GT badge from the rear of my car. I just carefully pried it off with a screw driver then sat on my arse in the garage for ages picking the left over tape off! Took me ages! Its all good now though, the new Falcon badge is on and I managed to not damage any paintwork.
