    Audi Badge removed (pics)

    Well I decided last night to completely de-badge my rear, I had removed the other badges but decided to remove the rings, however......

    They have left a mark; I have tried polish, bug and tar remover, white spirit and T-cut to no avail.

    The marks almost look like the lacquer is peeling around where the glue was,

    I am sure there are other threads about this but I tried to search but it brought up everything lol

    Anyone ideas how to remove this (possibly glue resin) or is this the lacquer and should I put the badge back?







    Wanted KO4 Turbo.... Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Looks like it could be lacquer. Test would be to get some Autoglym tar remover (what I usually use) and give that a go, if it doesn't come off then definitely lacquer.

    true m8 true will be sprayed either end of this month or middle of next then time for big detail full weekends worth mrs will h8 me lol.

    just a random idea will it pick off just try a lil bit and if it picks off sounds like glue to me or try heating the pannel with hairdryer and try to get it off that way dont heat it to much though.

    just warm it it not scorch it.

    Yes same method will remove scratches, BUT you have to be careful not to go through!!!!

    Practice makes perfect and i had plenty lol

    Just go to a local small bodyshop and sort them a £10 just to rub and buff for you

    It would take 15 min tops

    We used to charge a full car detail including :

    Wash
    Alloys
    Plastics and rubbers restored
    De-tar all lower car
    Wet sand scratches
    Full machine polish ( 3m FastCut Plus )
    Full machine Glaze ( 3m )
    Wax protection ( Farecla Wax-Top )

    £150 and the car would look like its just been painted!!!

    It took me about 13-14 coats and buffing off of Meguiars Scratch X. That'll work! I did it on my friends A3 the other day aswell.
