    Due to a freak accident with a jet washer and my 1.6's . I decided it was time to debadge it..

    An here's the pictures:

    Any tips on getting the residue off? I got the majority off using a cloth and some polish, but you can still see a faint outline of the 'A' which I can't seem to shift!

    Cheers

    You could try warming the remaining adhesive with a hair dryer before using a bit of polish but ideally you want some sort of tar/glue remover like Tardis.

    It's great stuff but I think it only comes in large cans at about £25 a pop so maybe a bit extravagant for your needs - unless you've caught the detailing bug!

    Yes they have been suggested before by other members who have raised the same question.

    I would try the wd40 first though, it is amazing stuff really!

    how about hair dryer to warm it up and clay to get it off, as seen in the after care section. might work, but i think heat (warm not hot) is the key to loosen the glue

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Due to the flat being on the 3rd floor I would need one hell of an extension lead for the hair dryer lol

    It's only a slight 'ghosting' of glue round the 'A' so I will try and shift it with products before I mount my car on scafolding to get close to power lol
