    Guys,

    Following on from my thread on my wheel refurb, I want to do the centre caps as well for a perfect match. However how do you get the Audi logos free from the plastic painted section? They look like they unclip but dont budge really and don't want to force them.

    Some pics just to show the piece im talikng about:

    So anyone managed it? If not anyone got any good ideas in how to paint them without getting paint all over the Audi piece? I cant see how I could get a perfect finish trying to mask them!!

    I found mine had a little bit of glue over the prong on the inside. I must have been unlucky :)

    Scrapped that away and they do just pop out.
