Question Badges

Hey guys,

Just wondering what would be the best way to get off the "Falcon" and "ford" badges from the tailgate of my EF wagon.


Would the paint be a different color, seeing as its a '94 car?

Thanx as always


Chris

Use a hair dryer, the paint might be different depending on the colour.
I use metho to get the glue off, but be sure to clean it propperly after, then hit it with some polish.
cheers

Yeah, Both badges will have holes underneath em !
The Ford one will have 2 Holes around the size of 5 cent peices, and the Falcon Badge will have 2 x 3mm Holes.

Also, to make things easier, use the hairdryer, along with some Dental Floss, to get behind the Badge, and cut between the double sided tape, and the Badge/Body work.

Cheers
Matti

The "Fairmont" badge on back of my EF didn't have holes behind it.

I see a lot of taxi's that don't have rear badges, EFs and ELs. And all of them holes in the place where the badge should be.

i used the exact same method as Xyphoid said.

Heat it up a bit, use fishing line to get behind the badge. use a sawing motion to cut the double sided tape between the badge and the body. then you will be left with some tape. use metho to remove the glue, then wash the area with water to remove the metho. then polish like mad.

Ive removed the GL badge and also the Alloy Head badges from my XF, and none of those had any holes underneath.. and the paint underneath came back to the same colour as the rest of the car always.

Good luck with your badges mate.

On the Tailgate of a Falcon, they don't have any holes for the Ford oval.

EF/L has 2 holes for the Ford oval.

Fishing line works better than dental floss.
