    hi peeps

    after reading the audiworld forums ive decided to do a few more mods, beetle sunglasses, s4 aluminium trim, but firstly debadge (leaving just the rings)

    this is the method ive read in basic: Heat up badge using hairdryer until feels hot then use dental floss to prise away

    My problem is that the yanks have used a product called "goo gone" to remove the adhesive left over- but dont think that is available in uk

    Does anyone know any equivalants in uk that wont damage paintwork?? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug.gif


    thx yaseen

    Pur a few jugs of boiling water over the badge, and if that dnt move it, then use a hair dryer...

    Use a thing called 'stick stuff remover' which surprisingly, removes sticky stuff... its based on citric acid(lemon juice) so wont damage the paint work... use a bit of t-cut after and then polish over it...

    Hi
    Mate
    Myself I used auto GLYM tar removal its work on car paint like a magic so used that & its good for any mark on the car it wont damage you paint work as well. only 3.99
    Sorry rich but t cut it’s not good for car paint after some time it’s got bad effects on paint. Try this but still you have to rub hard.

    Silicone eater, for removing old sealant will remove all of the adhesive too. It is non harmful to most surfaces ie plastic cabinets etc etc.

    Thx for all the replies

    rear now de-badged, was very easy and straightforward, badges came of easily, and Autoglym tar remover took glue off with no trouble - excellent product

    looks much better /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/1luvu.gif

    Two packets of floss later and the car was badgeless, although it may of been a bit cold when i did it,(2 degrees), still car looks better for it, dont think i'll be removing the rings, mite look a bit too bare. Thanks for the info.J:tumble:
