debadging / cleaning

I have surface rust on my futura and falcon badges on my au.

What is the best method or removing then cleaning the sticky glue off the paint without dammaging the paint?

also does any one know how much new badges cost?

about $25 for a falcon badge, don't know about the futura badge. i'm assuming its a series 1 AU or EL or EF with the Futura badge underneath the Falcon badge on the left hand side.

as for cleaning the sticky crap off the badge and paint, try some Eucalyptus Oil on a cloth, worked a treat on my car, just make sure you clean the oil off the paint afterwards with some hot water and methylated spirits, otherwise the new bade wont stick.

Use hair dryer or heat gun (on low heat) to remove the badges but not too hot.

Yep the eucalyptus oil is the go the remaining gunk from the red stripe on my xr6 came off without a prob. As for the badges some little mongrels releived me of that burden, scratched the guards down to the undercoat. I had to scrape of the foam sticky stuff with eucalyptus oil and my thumbnail (took a good hour each side) I still havent replaced the badges.
