I have just debadged the boot lid of my xf and can't get off the white glue/residue that is left behind without sanding the paint back with sand paper. it appears to be like white paint but will only come off if scratched off. any ideas because i dont want to have to repaint the back of the boot.
Big Kev's Goo remover! Seriously, that and hot soapy water with a fine scourer/dish cloth and very careful work with a paint scraper.
thats how i got mine off anyway.
Took about 45 minutes, but well worth it.
chances are its old polish that hadnt been wiped off from behind the badge, maybe try some eucaliptis (sp?) oil, just a small amount on a rag and a light rub, dont rub too hard because it may end up taking the paint off
u can get the oil from your local supermarket
The magna is nearly dead...i need a new car...AGAIN!!...why did i sell the EL??
The way that i got my badges off was to put some(heaps) of CRC or WD40 along the top of the badge to seep down between it and the panel. wait bout 10 mins. then heat up with hair dryer and use fishing line behind badge in sawing action to take off badge
doesnt pull off any paint this way
