Re: removing badges


First wash your car!

Then when it is dry and clean use a hair dryer to heat(not melt) the badge. This weakens the tape.

While it is still warm use a firm plastic scraper. One that isn't sharp! Push the badge off. If is gets to hard apply some more heat.

Then use a new/sharp flat stanley blade to remove excess glue. Spray on water to reduce friction. When there is only a smear left remove this with a cloth and kerosine.

Finally use a machine polisher and polish to remove shadow effect. Take your time and don't go mad or you will create buff marks. Don't push harder than you have to.

If you are patient and have steady hands you will not be able to see that there ever was a badge there. But be carefull as damage is easily made.
The newer your car the easier it will be to remove...

Good luck
