    I used the side of a cheese grater and then smoothed the whole thing off with a butane gas torch and a hot knife :) I have already de wipered the front and put that new 100% opaque laminex over the lights so i dont use the stalks much now except to hang my fluffy dice on. neat !! Next job is to do away with all the mirrors !! I mean how yesterday are mirrors ???? :drag:

    Has any of the pro debadging people used nail polish remover to get rid of the goo left behind by the letters? Safe to use?

    Not sure, but wd40 was ok, and sticky stuff remover is very cheap from stationary shops... (no paddy, that doesn't mean shops that can't move!!)

    I've got an old 1.2 Vauxhall Nova badge in my garage. What's it worth?

    Had Dennis Bishop round today from Mobile car valeting and detailing services for kent. - A.C Valeting
    To give my phantom pearl a little top up...
    Results blinding as always, and a nice guy too.. I asked him his opinion on debadging my car, and he said that he thought badges are just a manufacturers way of you advertising a particular model for them, and he much prefers the lines of the back of a car with just the manufacturers logo in the centre of the boot..!
    Having said that, he quite liked the sline badges on the wings as he said they added a small splash of colour to the sides to break up the black a bit..
    So looks like i might go for the full debadge after all!
    Or I could get those badges off you instead paddy:tumble:
