    Hi,

    I recently took the badges off the rear of the car. Now I'm left with glue outlines of them. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif Any ideas how to get rid of the bits of glue that remain? Tried rubbing them with a chamois leather, with little success.

    Any chemicals recommended? White spirit etc?

    Thanks,

    BB

    Autoglym tar remover. Works nicely but follow up with some polish or wax.

    I was once told be a dealer that blowing them with a hair dryer metlted the glue so most would come off with the badge - then simply clean with soapy water.

    Of course this may not be of too much help if you have already taken the badges off.....

    Glue normally comes off with white spirit but I would be very sure that I checked with someone "in the know" before using this on car paintwork.

    I would lightly T-Cut the area and then finish off with a polish.
