    Debadged the A3

    I decided to debadge the A3 today and give her a good clean.

    That paint has been on there since 1999 so even after 11 years there wasnt much difference in the paint underneath, good news for anyone planning to debadge!

    I used the hairdryer and fishing line method, then scraped off the remaining adhesive before using t-cut to blend in the uncovered paint. Then gave her a good clean and polish.

    First letter removed... dear God that's a lot of crap under there



    Scraped off all the glue and was left with this, used Muc-Off to clean it up.



    Then t-cut it, washed and polish... you cant tell the letters were ever there



    I'm happy with how it turned out, looks a lot smoother and cleaner without the badges

    No major plans due to being a student and funds being tight, got some pressed plates from dubmeister on order and considering lowering on cheap eBay JOMs coilovers but otherwise keeping it standard.

    I was planning to do the grill surround in black but not sure if it will suit this colour
